A “pink period” – peonies are just starting to come out- together with the ornamental, double-flowered raspberry. ( Must take cuttings old shrub getting a bit woody).
Plus one for our American friends – “Oregon grape “. The scent is heavenly. The plant tough and invasive! Hell to get rid of. There were mahonia plants growing up into the dining room when we bought this property. The roots had come right through about 18” of stone wall.
