The weather for the last few days has beeen fantastic. As I write it is 24 degrees C and I have had to come in out of the garden as, with very little breeze, it feels very hot indeed.
I have followed a routine by taking some photos in the morning but this afternoon a couple of buzzards flew over our garden and I couldn’t resist breaking my regime.
I have been surprised and pleased what opportunities I have had from our tiny urban garden.
I have left some dandelions as the bees love them

The vibernum is lasting well
The bees love the aubretia too
Tulips have lasted so well but are beginning to go over now
Who let those forget-me-nots in?
Unfortunately our rosemary is being decimated by the Rosemary beetle
The crab apple in the front garden is looking spectacular
The magnolia is dwarfed by the crab apple
The acer is beginning to provide cover for the birds
