I smelled them before I saw them.  A beautiful scent as I went through the side gate between the front and back garden and there were the Lily of the Valley, so small and unassuming, but packing a punch way beyond their size  :D

Spotted the first may blossom out in the hedge this morning.  I'm please to see that at last ...  The apples are glorious.

Alliums today - these are Purple Sensation.  The slightly tatty looking leaves belong to them as well.  It seems as soon as the flowers open, the leaves give up the ghost and die back, but that is fine.  It makes room for everything else coming through  :)

I couldn't choose my favourite today - foxgloves or Iris sibirica.  Both so easy to grow and look so spectacular when they start to flower  :D

Lovely foxgloves, New Shoot.  Not noticed any here this year but we're a bit behind you.
