My neighbour brought me some double lilacs, she brings me some each year because she knows that I love them too.
There are lots of firsts in the garden just now, I found the first of our California poppies in bloom, pretty soon there will be thousands of these. They are prolific spreaders and act as a bit of a ground cover here.
Here is the first daisy in bloom. We have loads of these and it is one of my favourite flowers to bring in as a cut flower. They are so simple and fresh looking.And up top is a picture of our first columbine in bloom, I think that is the one that you gave me last year, Samantha.
