TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ 31 My Garden Today

As I went out to the garden this afternoon, I found
this ballerina in her tutu dancing on my Almond tree.

when she saw me, she blushed rosy red, was she
pleased, was she embarrassed? Who can tell....

Meanwhile, Viburnum burkwoodii was out in all her
glory exuding perfume all around.

Not to be outdone, the first branch of my Orchid had
opened and the whole shadehouse was bathed in scent.

Shy 'Claire Matin' coyly turned her head as I lifted
my camera.

Further down the garden path the Crabapple was
reaching for the sky,

here it is again in all its perfumed delight, Malus
shading the grass that perhaps I should
have weeded out. On the other hand, the grass is
still green and green is good.
