Six weeks to go before the ngs open day on 8th June.
Everything in the garden is bursting into leaf. Indeed all the trees now have leaves and the azaleas and rhododendrons are (almost) out. 
Very busy time. Still not sure its going to be up to scratch on the day. The local nurserymen know me by name now I'm such a good customer!

All the pond plants starting into life

Forget-me-nots replace the daffodils Aquilegias on the steps to the belvedere
That new bed that was planted back in Feb is starting to look good Greenhouse full - hanging baskets starting to tumble!
I call this a honeysuckle azalea because its evening scent is so powerful  Phlox in the rockery
