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.
