May Posy

Monday, 13 May 2013





That's more like it. A riot of colour for May's posy.

But the most spectacular thing in my garden at the moment is the white blossom on my crab apple tree. It is smothered. I am sure there are more flowers this year than usual. The quince tree too is blossoming although not quite as blatantly as this.

  2. Such a vibrant and pretty posy. Sadly the weather here has deteriorated again and the blossom which was looking so pretty a day or two again, is being bashed in the wind and rain and is now falling to the floor. At least I took some photos whilst it looked good!
    Such a blue sky in your pictures too! x

  6. Our apple trees have suddenly erupted into a beautiful foamy mass of the most gorgeous blossom, my fingers are crossed for a wonderful harvest later this year.

  10. We have a crab apple tree here too, going bonkers in next door's garden. I can see it out of my window.

  11. Fantastic Sue. I love those flamboyant tulips, but the crab apple is truly spectacular.

    I fear for our blossom. The weather forecast map had green bits on it tonight. Right over our heads. I think that's bad news. Hey ho. It was nice while it lasted.

  12. I think we live in a bit of a microclimate. I thought we had no apple blossom at all, but it just hasn't flowered yet, no blossom at all on the pears and I think the quince may have succumbed to the frost :( On the other hand the blackthorn is like foam, so I think it may be a good year for sloe gin :)

  13. Wonderful flowers, the tulips are particularly stunning. But my absolute favourites are fruit blossom. The promise of things to come, the beginning of it all. The pink outer petals of apple blossom. Divine. Hope you have a lovely week.

  14. Gorgeous posy - and lovely blossom. We have a small apple tree in our garden that's covered in blossom, and we've just planted another.Lots of rain here this afternoon, which means I don't have to keep watering in the new tree! Have a good week. x

  16. I've ordered some stripy tulips for next year already. Love the T&G Green jug you've arranged your posy in. Have you got any of the yellow and white striped stuff?
