20/04/2017 Very windy and chilly out. Photos very difficult as everything is blowing all over the place.

Maximum temperature 14C, minimum -3C. 24 kmh NE wind with 39 kmh gusts.  Horrible outside again despite the blue sky. Dry.
Bluebells.

Snowball bush - Viburnum.

Lilac.

Choisya ternata.

Bearded irises trying hard to stay upright!

Cherries hopefully are surviving the cold.

Tulip.

Easter bunnies.

  1. Out of all those great photos, I like the chocolate bunnies the best! HAHA.....Beautiful flowers. I think I saw a snowball bush in bloom around here the other day. I don't see a lot of them much anymore. I have the hydrangea that is somewhat like the snowball only colored. I have fours bushes, all came from the same bush. Some will be pink, blue and purple..

    1. We also have hydrangeas which seem to change colour between pink and a blue on the same plant though they are mostly blue. Love Lindt chocolate...... Hope your diet is going well. Diane

  2. Diane, I love Lindt chocolate! And your photos turned out very well! Sometimes the wind can work against us, sometimes it can work with us. I think it worked with you, as your photos look alive and beautiful!

    1. Linda i also love Lindt chocolate, mu favourite. The problem though yesterday was the wind was so cold and making my eyes water so much I could not focus properly. Luckily the camera managed pretty much without me! Have a great weekend Diane

  3. You have such wonderful flowers to photograph. They're all lovely; my favorite? The lone tulip. The tulips are my favorite flowers as they were the first "flower" bouquet I received while in high school. :)

  4. In the SW spring always brings wind. Is that true for you? Can't say no to Lindt chocolate.

    1. I do not remember high winds in April and May like we are having now. Usually April showers and it has been dry! Mmmm Lindt is great :-) Diane
