Its so encouraging to see new leaves on trees especially the acers and Rhodos in bloom. In one area we have woodland leafy plants coming up now. In the photos are the big Gunnera with a nice leaved Rheum as its neighbour. The gunnera needs a bit of elbo room but I love it.

Fantastic colour on the stems of your Rheum. Do you have any name for it? Hope you are feeling better again.

Two great plants. I'd love the space for a Rheum.

Beautiful plants, need a bit more than elbow room i'd say!

Thanks Mary, I am feeling a lot better now though limited what I can do in the garden. Are you going to Birr next month? I don't know the name of the Rheum but in spring and early summer it shows its colour well.

Not this year! Robert and I had been so looking forward to the dancing. My son is bestman for his friend that weekend and we are on babysitting duty. Looking forward to next year in the north.
