The following is a picture of an Amelanchier next to an Acer. The Amelanchier is a must it has three seasons of interest. In the spring the flowers are delightful although my photography doesn't do justice. In the summer the small red fruits, edible and taste like strawberries, attract the birds, which do such somersaults trying to get at them on the wing. Then the best of all is in the Autumn when the lovely Autumn colours compete with any Acer.
The Rhubarb is coming through nicely and Mike keeps asking why he hasn't had any to eat yet. I have to confess I still have bags from last year in the freezer, I think they will end up on the compost heap yet again. What a waste!
The last photograph is of some of my Hostas these seem to shoot before my all green ones. Yes my only non organic weakness is slug pellets. I keep thinking of a good substitute but not quite got there yet. Hostas in particular I find exciting to watch and enjoy having them in pots near the house. Helps to do slug watch there too.
