To day I took photos of Hypericum hidcote, Perennial Sweet Pea and Philadelphus or Mock Orange. All seem to be ahead of schedule.Hypericum is also called St. John's Wort and tends to bloom about the feast of St. John the Baptist 24 June. This is only 13 th.  I would feel too that this year is  great year for flowers.

Lovely colour on that perennial sweet pea. There's a lovely one I admire every day when I'm out for my walk.

The sweet pea is beautiful, Dick and the scent from the Philadelphus is just gorgeous at this time of year.

Thank you all. My modem was out of action and is working again. The flowers are better than most years this year.
