The earth laughs in flowers

...said Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I'd like to take him on a tour round our garden just at the moment. A lot of times in the year it's not laughing very much and sometimes it's sobbing and miserable as sin, but at the end of May...

Wisteria hysteria!

(still not fully out)

As Monet said, "I must have flowers, always, and always."

“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.”  Iris Murdoch

Who could be miserable in a garden like this?

(Don't answer that!)
