Colour craving

Postbox-red tulips are dazzling in the spring sunshine this morning, together with hints of colour elsewhere.

The leaves of epimedium fascinate me, with their heart shape, veined surface and range of tones from crimson to chartreuse…then up pops a delicate gathering of yellow flowers.

Forget-me-nots have seeded themselves across our garden, for which I’m grateful. The more the merrier, especially in the gravel path.

Peonies are rising out of the soil now, with leaves glossy and bronze.

The odd Spanish bluebell is appearing in our first bed. The white in particular sings out against green.

A new wave of tulips…gorgeous orange-yellow marble.

And we’re just letting the dandelions do their thing, as bumblebees, solitary bees and honeybees all visit them for food, together with hoverflies, beetles, and butterflies.
