End of Month View – May

People say a picture says more than a thousand words, I tend to agree, but I also believe a movie says so much more than pictures. So for my very first ‘End of Mont View’ I am posting a movie of my garden – instead of the 50 or so photos I would need in order to show you the same. My garden is growing like mad and my inner London paradise is starting to take on the secluded and secret look it gets during the summer and autumn.

The first lilies!

Yes, the first lilies are flowering in my garden, just thought I would share that with you :-)
The Asiatic lilies are always the first one to flower, but all the oriental lilies have fat buds and won’t be that many weeks behind. Despite my absolutely tiny garden I have managed to squeeze in more than 150 lilies of various type and height, and I am sure I can manage to fit a few more. There will be more lily photos next month!

May flowers in London

For us gardeners it seems difficult to talk about anything else than our gardens and the weather, yet – we seem to have a rather short memory when it comes to past weather. Do you remember what kind of weather we had last spring or the spring before? Well, I do, because I have written it down, but I also do because it was so extreme! I suppose for many of us, EXTREME is the word we could start using to describe the weather by in the future, no matter where we live.

Tree following, arrival of leaves

It’s already gone a whole month since last time I wrote about my tree, my lovely Magnolia soulangeana 'Heaven Scent', so now it’s about time for another update.
