Photo Project 52 – week 14 – spring flowers

For this week’s photo entry I’ve used picnik to create a collage of spring flowers made up of photos I’ve taken in my garden.  Its amazing how much photographic interest there is in out there.

On the top left hand side is the commonly found ornamental currant or Ribes, a quick growing plant which provides a splash of pink every March and April.  Next to it are the white flowers of the amelanchier or snowy mespilus, a fantastic all-rounder which I highly recommend.

Below, on the left handside, are the yellow pompoms of kerria japonica an invasive intruder from my neighbour’s garden but welcome all the same for its beautiful flowers.  Next to that are the deep pink flowers and glossy foliage of camellia japonica, another fantastic shrub that is reknown for its showy displays every spring.

    I kept this post in my inbox (snowed under at mo!) as I wanted to say how much I love all of these flowers, and I hope you won’t mind if I ‘borrow’ the idea and post some of mine on my blog now!!

  2. Lovely photos and you have some lovely flowers in your garden – ours looks a bit bare at this time of year.

  3. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

    Are you sure you haven’t been sneaking photographs of my garden! I have all of these except the camelia (which I used to have in fact). Even my kerria is an invader from next door just like yours! Your lovely photos have saved me the bother of going out to take my own shots (especially difficult now the rain has set in).

    I love the pictures of your flowers from your garden. And I don’t think I’ve heard of any of them before. I don’t really have a green thumb, but I’d at least like to grow my own vegetables one day. Maybe we’ll have a big garden in our next house.
