    I've show it like that because until Annabelle is in bloom it's difficult to get a good shot in situ

        I love that plant support Shiney, it's so charmingly rustic! :dbgrtmb:

        Lonicera fragrantissima seems to have gone into a second full flowering, I thought it was waning early this year, but the recent sunshine has brought it back in all its glory. Not just a loud buzz but almost a din this year with all the bees on it! First year I've had berries on the Aucuba japonica, wasn't really bothered before but I actually quite like them now. :) Viola odorata 'The Czar' are starting to look more promising this year, more buds on them than previous years. This is the time of year when there are the fewest flowers in the garden, think I'll add a daphne and a couple of different types of pulmonaria for next year. Can't wait for my hebes to arrive at the end of the month, things are getting exciting now! :hapydancsmil:

            @Michael Hewett your eranthis are lovely! I have been growing some from seed from my previous garden and they still haven't flowered. I might just give up and buy corms/bulbs.
            Here is acacia boormanii grown from seed and flowering for the first time in the cold greenhouse. A bit underwhelming so far, but there is a lot of flower to come because it's taller than me and very wide! Perfume is good - different from florist's mimosa.

                    I thought it was too but was afraid to say because I always doubt myself.

                      @Perki, you are probably correct

                      Is that Eleagnus to the right ?

                        Probably is a Elaeagnus, would need a closer picture for a better ID. The back of leaves of Elaeagnus have a creamy white colouring .

                            Yes, it may well be Elaeagnus
