Maximum temperature 15C, minimum 4C.  28 kmh NE wind with 38 kmh gusts.   5 mm rain measured this morning
Too cold for the tulips again today!

Apple blossom just starting.

The only insect I saw, a bumble bee in the distance.

White bells.

A male blackbird also not very close.

Variegated vinca.

Figs.

The choisya ternata again, but it is looking so great at the moment.

Another tulip in bud.

  2. Beautiful shots. Loving all the colors. Wished I had a garden that all the plants would bloom all at the same time!!!! Wow, that would be amazing and such a blast of color!

    1. Blooming all at the same time would be good so long as it is all year round!!! Thanks for the comment Diane

  4. Hope the winds don't blow off your beautiful blooms. Finally calmed down a bit here but I know the spring winds aren't over yet.
