One very quick photo, taken on my phone so not the best picture in the world! I can now do a little more walking around than I have been able to for the last two days, so I went to the window and took this:
As you can see the ceanothus is in full bloom (and full of bees) and things generally are filling out and flowering. We have some pink lychnis flowering, and also a pale pink geranium (just right of the photinia, bottom left) which I don’t remember planting and I think has self-seeded, but it’s pretty so I don’t mind. Lots of new growth on the old rhododendron (near the top left, above the yellow-green of Santolina “Lemon Fizz”), both salvias doing well, and the lavenders just starting to flower.
Not a bad view when you’re convalescing!
