The garden is beginning to look quite festive with the aquilegia (or Granny's nightcaps, or granny's bonnets as we call them in Suffolk and Norfolk) now bursting into bloom. They are of all sorts of colours and quite a variety of shapes.
Having developed the top picture I found that there was a bumble bee in the bottom right of the picture, so I enlarged him for the above picture. He was very active and industrious.
We also seem to have quite a collection of bonsai (or potentially bonsai) trees taking up the space on the garden tea table. They are not 'bought' trees, but raised from tiny seedlings we've found. The yew tree at the back has taken me around ten years to raise. Mostly they are native trees, so they live outside all year round. I must find somewhere permanent (preferably at eye level, more or less) for them. Shelves on a fence or wall ?
Suggestions would be welcome (remembering that it is a very small garden).
