New Growth

I'm so pressed with course assignments, a sermon and a View from the Pew for Newslink, that I really don't have time to blog my own garden, but here are a few photos for Rogation Sunday!

Now it's May, the garden is burgeoning with fresh foliage:
New leaves on a young walnut in the wild-flower meadow
The Lime alley with daisies

Bursting shoots on a Korean fir, with the first young cones

New shoots on the Quercus ilex hedge, showing colour variation

The herb garden, l-r: Lovage, Purple Fennel, Lemon Balm, Sage
low Box hedge in front

Artichokes, promising a fine harvest
The summer flowers are starting too:
Lupins just begining, in Susanna's Labyrinth garden

Cowslips spreading in the side lawn

Meadow Rue and Paeony buds in the Drive border

Wisteria blooming as standards in the Labyrinth

O all ye works of the Lord, bless ye the Lord
Praise Him and magnify Him for ever!
