Heart gladdening flowers
« on: April 14, 2018, 20:24 »
My nomination today is primroses.  Just the plain simple yellow ones are my favourites and are like dots of pure sunshine in the garden.

It is even better to see them doing so well, as I found them in the communal dumping ground at the plot.  I saw a single flower peeping out, investigated and unearthed a whole heap that someone had weeded out and chucked away.

Its like they are saying 'Thank you for rescuing us'  :D

I love daffodils for this - especially the bright yellow ones (rather than the paler lemon ones). Something about the colour after a great winter really cheers me up

I brought a couple of tiny primrose off-shoots back when we holidayed in Cornwall, about 5 years ago. They grew and I have patches of them all over the sunny side of my garden now  :)

Bright blue Anemone Blanda has just started flowering now, absolutely gorgeous  :) but there's never enough of it - despite me planting corms every year. It's a shame that it is obviously not that happy in my clay soil :(

I to like the primroses, there is a small bunch on the side of the ditch on the way to the plot. They look so lonely all on their own when further up there are loads of daffodils.

when we went tour local nursery a couple of weeks ago  they where selling polyanthus 3.00 a tray of 15 some where out in flower some where still green but started to bud up couldn't understand why they hadn't sold there now coming out in fabulous colours well worth buying two trays just for the colour when we went  back the other they had all gone maybe they didn't sell because of the wet weather

My new tulips are all coming out, plus the mini white narcissus.  It seems odd seeing them out when we are having summer weather.  I'm sure the cooler temperatures next week will suit them better  :)

Next door have some lovely Snowflakes - will someone please remind me to get some bulbs to plant in autumn  ;) 
I have lots of 'foreign' bluebells in flower near the house and native ones about to open at the far end of the garden, plus some violets which have seeded themselves in the path  :)

I snapped these yesterday in my garden

Still do not understand why 1 photo is displaying the right way up & the other 2 sideways on this time, they’re all the right way up in my photo roll.

Very pretty  :)

Still do not understand why 1 photo is displaying the right way up & the other 2 sideways on this time, theyre all the right way up in my photo roll.

If you are using your iPad, its an Apple thing.  My iPhone does it as well.  Even though the photo looks OK on your photo roll, it is pot luck which way up it will be once it loads.  It happens to me on other forums as well with my phone.

I don't have an iPad, but on my phone I sort it by tapping on the photo, going into edit and rotating it round 360 degrees.  That always works and they load right way up.

My contribution today is my apple arch which is now in full bloom  :)

Thank you ,Ill take a look next time I pos5 a photo, only use my iPad for forum etc, I find my phone too small & fiddly.
Lovely blossom, I noticed my cherry tree at the allotment was flowering yesterday, but not as much as it had a very heavy prune at the end of last year to stop it escaping from the fruit cage🙁

We've a terrible problem with these weeds popping up all over the place - they're just too pretty to grub up!
