Things are very strange in the garden at the moment. I still have the primulas in full bloom, there are some narcissi clinging on, but the tulips are going past their best!

The Lilac and Laburnum which usually start flowering in mid May are nearly fully out. It must all be down to our weather conditions – having had a terribly cold winter and early spring holding up the primroses, while the very warm dry weather of the last few weeks must have brought other flowers forward. Hey ho, the joys of gardening!
