Amelanchier

Hurray for Spring sunshine!

and the Amelanchier in full bloom!

Don’t you just love that word – Amel …… anch …… eeeee …….errrrr.

I’m not even sure that’s how to say it, and I can never remember it, but it is a grand name.

With the white narcissi underneath, my garden seems to have a bridal feel to it at the moment.

I wonder what other delicate white flowers I could grow to flower at this time of year, any ideas?

I like the way the cerise cyclamen and bright pink and purple hyacinths of March gave way to this froth of white in April. It will change again into the pinks, oranges and blues of the summer planting. Totally unplanned, but I like it! Serendipity – yes!!!

Post script: I went for a walk round the village this evening, to look for other white flowers in bloom and came across some white muscari and white myosotis – they will join the bridal theme next year. Loving the theatre of it. I have never thought of playing with colour in the garden in this way before. Fun!
