Almost forgot to give this a title.

Today has been a busy one, but there won’t be any big pictures of the garden to show you how much it has changed – it’s a work in progress, and I’m going to make you wait a few weeks for the big reveal. It’s looking good, so far, but I want it to look a little better before showing it off.

So this post is all about attempts to photograph the things that are flowering just now. I really, really need a decent macro lens, but some of these aren’t too bad.

The troughs under the living room window are starting to get some colour:

A lovely pink geranium:

And some of the “trailing” lobelia, showing considerable reluctance to trail:

Also at the front, the ceanothus has burst into flower and looks amazing:

Salvia, a bright splash of red amongst the green:

Lots of bumblebees around today, and I spent a lot of time trying to get a picture of one of them flitting around the heuchera. This was the best:

In the back garden, we have a lot of blue, purple and pink. Hydrangea:

Lantana:

And a couple of different lavenders:

So it’s nice to have lots of zingy red and orange marigolds for contrast:

That’s it for this week, hope you are enjoying good weather.
