April in Oxfordshire

The weather here has been true old-fashioned ‘sunshine and showers’…. real April weather.
I have been trying to dodge it over the weekend, attempting to plant a box hedge without being battered by the sting of hail.

I took this through the rain, as it fell, lit up by sunshine.

It gave the garden a surreal, scattered with diamonds look. At the back of the house, the sky was a deep purple – grey, like a mulberry stain, lit up by a faint rainbow.

March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers.

No time to lose. No, time to lose. Make time to stand and stare.... Did you see that?

  1. With you every time there Chris, large crowd and I vamoose in the opposite direction for as long as needs be.
    Pretty blossom Pseu, you have some very nice flowering trees in your garden.

  2. CO: there is also the fact that festivals tend to be riddled with bad, over-priced food, rubbish to the rafters, screaming children, drunken yobs, and the realisation that the only places where one can sit down are covered in vomit.

  3. thank you, Christina. QUite pleased with the blossom this year… this and the amalanchier are doing well, in particular.
