Today's delivery - my tripod ladder! I'm delighted with it, its light enough to carry about with ease and absolutely stable. I should have bought one years ago. I bought the second size up. All three legs can extend and take me up higher than this, which will make it suitable for most jobs around the garden. There is a mass of work that I can do with it quite apart from thinning out the apple trees. I hope it isn't too late in the season for me to be pruning them as they are already starting to bud up.
The 'St Patrick's Day' daffodils were open on their name day.
Cold winds have given the camellias quite a bashing. I've done a lot of dead heading so that I can enjoy the flower heads that have not been too damaged.
The flowers don't last for long, but what a joy they are while they bloom.
Just look at the beauty of the unfolding bud.
This is 'Lavinia Maggi.'
