This morning we had thunder and lightning and short bursts of heavy rain, but now the sun is shining. Out of my workrooms the views are mostly of greens, but other colours are fast coming through.
When I completed my lino plate a couple of weeks ago, the view from the kitchen print room included the last of the hawthorn blossom.
Today, from the sewing room at the back - also looking towards the hawthorns - the alliums and lavender are doing well, as is the unruly borage, and some bindweed!
The long view over the neighbouring land includes a flowering buddleia and a wild rose behind it in the middle distance.
From the front window of the sewing room I have the rose Dortmund already flowering up against the glass, and with lots of buds this year,
and lots of kniphofia heads about to flower.
