      I Haven't had much of a chance to go around taking photos of flowers But the pear and plum blossom has survived the heavy frosts. Apples haven't started to flower yet and the buds are hiding.

      Just snapped a couple of shots near the pear tree.

      This Viburnum is bush/tree is now 12ft high and 8ft diameter :rolleyespink: (that's not the dimensions of the flower :heehee:)

          Hi @Jenny namaste I did a George Washington on the cherry trees.

          There were four of them here when we bought the place and the woman said that the birds always got the cherries before they were ripe. They were too big to net and, with the other fruit trees around them, too crowded. So after a couple of years I chopped them down together with two cox's orange pippin trees that were very old (about 100 yrs) and diseased.

          The other trees all prospered much better for having more space and less competition and they have produced fantastically despite their age. :)

                @JWK your crown imperial's are beautiful :thud: I've been looking into getting some since seeing them on GW last week but most places seem to be sold out. They are on my list.

                This flowered today. It was a bulb I found in one of the pots I bought last year. I think it's a Iris and I'm really impressed by it :yes:

                  @Jasmine star the best time to plant Crown Imperials is the Autumn, they should be available then - I got mine from jparkers

                        Good morning Philip. For how long do Hellebores bloom? Not that I can have them here, just curious. Lovely colour Amaryllis.
