Exechorda macrantha 'The Bride'

It's so exciting to see the garden bursting into life.

The camassia and geums are the star performers in my garden at the minute as the tulips, cherry and apple blossoms go over. But the alliums and rhododendrons are not far behind. My peonies have juicy fat buds on them and the laburnum tree looks like it will give a bumper flowering this year.

I have put plenty of new photos in my 'May' and 'Greenhouse' albums. I just adore spring : )

Lovely flowers Rachel, my geums rivulare are doing great too, no sign of a cammassia yet though, but my first himalayan poppy opened today.
