My garden moodboard for May.
It's hard to describe the scent that is filling the room as I am sitting here. According to my gardener's journal this time of year I'm usually gathering lupins and stock to dot around the house. This year we are enjoying the delicious scent of wisteria, lilac and lily of the valley. The front of the house is dripping with flowers and to have the windows open allows the fragrance to permeate the air.
The pastel yellows and blues are now starting to give way to the more definite colours of Summer
(although the brightness of these blooms was the devil itself to capture on a sunny day!)
The profusions of tiny florets will soon give way to larger bolder flowers but for now they quietly get on, attracting the insects and helping the garden spring back to life.
Good old May - we knew you'd get here eventually!
(Hello to my new friends - look I'm waving - it's lovely to have you here!)
