In the back garden the pansies are out. We have a few of these - the colour is so intense.
My favourite, this one is so delicate but only one little plant survived the winter.
A newcomer this year - it reminds me of one of my favourite watercolours, Schmincke's Translucent Orange!
The tulips are all out.
A close-up of the orange ones. Who designed these things?!
Another new one - we bought two large Polygala bushes to put in big pots on the patio. This is a close-up of the small pea-like flowers. It's such an amazing design for something so tiny.
The flowers on the chives are really interesting in close-up.
