May's garden progress

I caught this unusual rainbow over Wamphray the other evening. And note that the beech trees have eventually come into leaf - it all happened within a couple of days.

There's some colour now in the garden. I like rhododendrons, and Elizabeth here is looking great.

Rhododendron Cunningham's White. The new buds are a lovely pink, but the flowers are mostly white.

The plan is to have some spring colour in this corner of the garden in years to come. I seem to recall that I was full of good intentions last year too, see here.

 Solomon's Seal doing well!

It was even warm enough to begin hardening off these bedding geraniums that I've grown from plugs.
