Get those Gooseberries covered up before Mrs Blackbird finds them @Logan :eek:

Thanks it's not the black birds that I'm worried about it's the wasps later on.
Last year it was so hot they ripened before they were kicked out of the nests.
But I do have to cover up the blueberries from the black birds. They're very clever if they see a gap they're in. :)

That's very nice @zigs

Our sambucus is coming into flower.

Anything that occupies this centre bed "has to perform," to hold this position.

It gets a significant prune every year, otherwise it would grow too tall.

The lawn's looking a bit rough after the scarifying, but it's already on the way to recovery.

There's three dwarf azaleas around this free standing tub. The front two flower at the same time but the one at the back is always later, (more or less the same colour, different variety).

Our favourite variety of azalea. Must be, we've four of them, through layering.

This is our huge "star" tortoise shell rhodo. This is the last to flower, proves the point, "the show ain't over 'til the fat lady sings."

We bought it and the one to the right about ten years ago in April, from Wyevale, they were reduced to clear .. (well half price) as they had frost damage on all the few buds they had. They did nothing obviously the first year, but for the second we planted them out and they've repaid us for rescuing them every year since. Though this one has grown to twice the size of the other. Last year I pruned off a couple of branches as it was crowding those either side.
The one to the left is the rhodo I dead-headed this morning.
