On a day like this, it's been good to look at the flowers now warming my garden:
|The native bleeding heart.|
|Deeper pinks on another plant.|
|My neighbour put in this fruit tree two years ago. I think it's a pear, but so far, we've just had flowers.|
|Deep pink stamens, white petals.|
|Pink heather. This is the plant I moved recently because it wasn't doing too well where it was. Now it's growing.|
|And right on schedule, the first of our rhododendrons burst into bloom. The pink ones come a week or so later; some of them are showing bits of colour now.|
Not exactly a flower, but still warmly welcomed:
|Fat robin, resplendent in his best duds.|
I feel warmer already.
And the heat has come on! Hooray!
