Early May at Middlethorpe Hall Garden

apple blossom

Isn’t the apple blossom beautiful.

When I arrived for my afternoon of gardening yesterday, the apple blossom in the walled garden was the first thing I noticed.  It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve seen the garden and so much had changed.  The walled garden is not only in full bloom with the many apple and pear trees,

but the herbaceous perennials are shooting up to take over from the spring bulbs.  All the daffodils in the Spring garden are now pretty much dead,

the white garden is starting to look much more like a white garden with Dicentra and tulips amongst others now in bloom.

The shade garden has also sprouted a lot more growth, with Bergenia in flower with the last of the daffodils, and the first of the tulips

and Polygonatum showing their blooms.
