I have to keep reminding myself that we are just about to enter the second week of April. The tulips are almost over – with the exception of red Appeldoorn who is the tortoise in this particular race.  Queen of the Night opened yesterday.  I’m pleased with the colour and shape combinations.


The cherry blossom has suddenly arrived.  I’m certain the tree was bare at the beginning of this week.  The sky has been so blue and cloudless and the blossom so white, that I just had to lie on the grass for this shot.
