5 in 5 | The Garden in April
I'm back in the garden for my 5 in 5 again this month - I hope it's okay to repeat the same theme as last month? It's a bit lacking in flowers but there are plenty of buds giving the promise of a good show in the next few weeks.
I'll start with the daffodils, which have finally decided to make an appearance - it won't be long until they are in full bloom. There's only a handful as I forgot to plant most of the spring bulbs!
Moving round behind the garage, the white pieris is getting ready to flower. The pink one, which is on the patio, is still in full flower as well.
The spirea, which is by the back fence, is just starting to show this year's leaves.
And just along from there, the red stemmed dogwood is also showing its new growth of leaves.
Finally, in pots on the patio are some grape hyacinths, a gift from a friend.
Elsewhere in the garden, there are plenty of buds on the three clematis plants, the euonymus is starting to wake up, and the raspberries are just starting to show signs of new growth. There are still loads of red berries on the cotoneaster, the buddleia is shooting up, a couple of the heathers are still flowering and the hydrangea is just starting to show signs that it survived the winter! It all looks very promising!
