Still waiting on our Hummers and Oriels they should be here soon if not in the next few days  but I am happy to say our house Wren Molly  and Barn Swallow Barney  are back now .  The weather has been glorious with lots of  sunshine temps up to 22C or 71 F  warm breezes and  the fresh smells of the spring in the air and windows wide open  .

                I cant believe this is the last week of April already and this year I am a head of the game in my gardens . I just planted Gladiolus bulbs , they will be up and in full bloom by August as they are an August flower . I planted an array of colours , red , white , orange  salmon pink ,  pink ,  yellow  , they are one of the many flowers my mum had  in her gardens when I was a kid and I  loved them all then to , they are what I call an old fashioned flower and still as beautiful as ever to me when in full bloom .

                                                  Well that's it for me for now the day awaits for me out there so off I go .

                                                                                       Until next time .

Beautiful photos, Elaine. Your lilacs are way ahead of ours.

It all looks lovely there Elaine. We're getting rain here today and its about 10C. The weather is to warm up a bit more each day this week. I still have to finish cleaning the gardens, do the edging and make new sign labels, and clean up some scattered poppies that are taking over! I love Gladiolus flowers. I wonder if deer eat them.
