Friday 4th May

I made a promise for tomorrrow, but I need a good bright day in order to fulfil it. I am keeping all of my fingers crossed and will let you know the outcome within the next few days.
Today is perfect, here's hoping it continues, but in the meantime enjoy some blossom from our garden.

Lots of wild flowers growing in our garden including some pretty yellow cowslips - one of which appears to have hybridised and turned from yellow into red!

  2. Hello Rosemary, So fascinating to find a new discovery when observing nature. Some plants hybridize quite easily, producing beautiful surprises while making their taxonomy a little sticky.

    1. Hello Jim - I have seen a cowslip which has turned orange, but never one that has become such a vibrant red before.

    1. I am hoping that all will turn out exactly as I plan. I was fascinated to see the cowslip - I think that a busy bee must have been responsible.

  5. Nice blossom. Supposed to have been a colder than average spring so far, except for the south east heat wave blip, according to the news, but the plants seem to follow their own internal rules when to come out.

    1. I must say that I have been very surprised at how 'on time' the spring flowers have been this year, I had imagined that they would hide away for longer. We had that heat wave blip and it was splendid but is now a faded memory.

  6. It is lovely to see your spring blooms. Still not cold here - supposed to be 18 C today but I am sure it is hotter.

    1. I have the impression that our climates must be fairly similar as I too have noticed that your blooms correspond to mine.
      The announcement has already been made H - it is on the next post.
