          First time in ages that I've managed to find time to get out into the garden with the camera, so some things have looked good and already gone over before I've had a chance to capture a photo. But, April is a beautiful month and it's still looking lovely out there. Here's a few I've taken today.

          Love how different this is..

          Ornamental cherry blossom already starting to fade away now, didn't get out early enough with the camera.

          Catkins and leaves starting to appear on the birch tree

          Californian Lilac, the scent is amazing, and the bees are happily buzzing around it.

          Thank you April, you are my favourite month in the garden :)
