The garden is finally giving out more colour. The camellias are in full bloom, the pear tree is covered in blossom (which I'm very hopeful about as last year the pear crop was pretty dismal) and the quince bushes are covered in coral coloured, waxy flowers. Growing alongside the bright coral quince bushes, clashing beautifully, is the flowering currant.
The flowering currant bush has the most beautiful pink, tiny flowers creating a natural ombre effect from light to dark down each stem. I snipped off a few shoots as we wandered round the garden, and they've been brightening up our mantel ever since.
