Bursting blossoms

The plum trees are attracting finch from all over the neighbourhood, greenfinch, chaffinch and goldfinch. I think my neighbour's bees were responsible for the hum as I took the photos. So that bit of the garden was high volume and high activity. The rosemary has also started to bloom. The flowers are really exquisite.

This afternoon as I trimmed the edges of the lawn I came across a large clump of violets having a good old gossip in the borders. This really brought a smile, as they were the flowers I was regretting leaving behind in our previous garden.
