A few quick photos

I am on my way to give an exam, so I’ll just post a few pictures of the garden and write more later. The anemone sylvestris is blooming beautifully right now.

Also in full bloom is the tallish primrose whose name I can’t remember. North Hill strain, maybe? I saw my first hummingbird moth of the season in the primrose patch, but it had zoomed away before my camera and I arrived.

Here is a close-up:

Peonies are budded!

And so are the orange poppies:

And the lily-of-the-valley are budded and unfurling:

And here is Mr Fluff taking a nap in the Myosotis sylvatica Forget-me-nots, with our blue ball, one of our garden’s few decorations:

  1. Love the pictures, but i bet Mr. Fluff is waiting for some unsuspecting bird ….you only think he is asleep!

  2. Gorgeous photos! I love all of them, but I especially like the sheen of the blue ball and how the cat looks so small in comparison. Lovely photos, Anne!
