So where's the snow?

Rosebay Willow herb

Often called fire weed, this plant grows all over the place. It’s also known as fireweed as it’s often the first to grow on burnt land.

So when we had all these plants growing in our new garden, I was fairly sure we had some, so I let one grow.

It’s a really beautiful flower, maybe take a close look next time you see a bank of them.

After all, a weed is just a flower in the wrong place!

Bird Cherry (Prunus padus)

We had one of these trees in our first house at Little Marsh near Beaulieu. Its scent when flowering is amazing, heavy and a bit peppery. It takes me back every time to when our kids were small and how they played in that garden. There’s lots of these trees in this part of the Lungau and it seems this year is their turn for heavy flowering. Here are some piccies I took today. Have you got some great flowering trees where you are?
