Garden - 18th April 20

Life still under lockdown because of Coronavirus/COVID-19. Rained for two days - much needed. Now sun out again. Everything green, verdant and growing like mad! T

Elizabeth declared the Osteospermums as the 'Flower of the Day'. Who an I to argue!
The rhododendrons and azaleas are bursting into flower. The two Guard Ducks now patrol the lawn. Mrs Duck is still in the Duck house on her eggs..
Some truly wonderful rhododendrons and azaleas 
Bluebells and forget-me-nots
Cape Daisies over wintered well.
Many tulips still out but all the daffodils are now over.
My favorite views of the wall and pathes
Bought a solar-powered fountain for the birdbath on the belvedere. Doesn't work too ell. But what do you expect for £8.99!
Acers coming into leaf
Another favorite view. This time of the steps up to the greenhouse
Another favourite is the pierus. Comes in all colours. Perhaps the most colourful plant throughout the year as it changes colour in every season.
The grass on the side lawn/football pitch is greener than it has ever been.
Planted up the hanging baskets in the greenhouse. Had our first meal from the veg patch - 'pick and come again' multi coloured lettuce. Everything growing like mad¬
