Flowers Wild and Tame

The flowers this year are like nothing I have seen before.

I don’t know if the long, snowy, winter helped, but it feels as if everything is blossoming in an ostentatious and over the top way this spring.

I have had my garden for five years now and it is slowly reaching a level of maturity where I would actually consider dividing and cutting back some of the plants I spent ages encouraging to grow. There are blooms everywhere and it finally feels almost lush!

Out in the nearby wine gardens, the vines are already developing mini-grapes and the wildflowers have taken over in between the rows.

Here is a selection of the blossoms, both from my garden and from the wild.
