More Pottering

Pottering is all about what catches the eye, or what dwells in the mind, or as I like to say "Attract the eye and the mind will follow"

In a sheltered, sunny corner, this Chaenomeles is already blooming.

Walking by the pond border watching Bianca interact with the fish.

 The colour of the Red Buckeye (Aesculus parvia) buds vary from salmon to red, here surrounded by last years Clethra alnifolia seedheads.

I wandered lonely as a cloud 
That floats on high o'er vales and hills
When all at once I saw a crowd (well, two. In the current crisis, this is considered a crowd)
A host, of golden daffodils. 

At anytime of year, colour, whether harmonious, contrasting, or downright shocking, is a must in our gardens.

 The white flowers of this Pieris, while spectacular in their own right, will soon be complemented by the red new leaves and the red flowers of the Red Buckeye seen behind.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 From L to R Abeliophylum, still dormant Spirea, Abeliophylum, Forsythia, more Abeliophulum,  bottom L the wonderfully coloured Salix 'Hakuro nishiki starting to leaf out.

The blooms still to fully open, our Magnolia is worthy of addition.
