The Garden In April

April holds such promise!  Everything springs to life and the garden starts to get slightly out of control…not a bad thing in my book.

Lots of yellow to be seen with the forsythia, daffs and kerria japonica, plus an unknown plant I took a cutting from a few years back and kept because it’s good ground cover.

The bluebells and grape hyacinth are up and the snowy mespilus is in full blossom.

The clematis montana has fat little buds ready to pop.

The tulips have been a bit disappointing (I think the squirrels are eating them) but this black one looks magnificent.

Finally, it wouldn’t be April without our second cherry tree coming into flower.  Love the way this one hangs in bunches.

Anyone else have a woodland garden?  I’d love to see pics!
