Today's Flowers: April draws to a close

 My overgrown privet is putting on quite a splash of white flowers.
I do enjoy the way it looks this time of the year.
 It is interesting how plants like privet that are often cut into hedges can grow as tall as trees when left to their own devises.
My garden is increasingly left to its own devises.
Some of my roses are doing well left to their own devises although I've lost some varieties.
The macro and close-up shots hide a multitude of mess.
A mild winter combined with a wet spring has loads of blooms abounding as April ends.
My neighbor's cat got a summer hair cut and he's frolicking in my evening primroses.

What a sweet kitty!

I do like the way privet looks in flower, but I don't like the smell!

The kitty is so beautiful, I think he is very clever to choose the beautiful flowers as company while he is taking a nap in "your garden"! ;)

Leora said...

I can smell the roses from here.

I love gardens with a more natural look and yours is just divine. Great photos too, and wonderful to have the cat in that last one.

You are blessed not to be allergic to the privet pollen grains. My family's outstanding joke, I nearly murdered my husband. We didn;t know about allergieis when we were first married. I cut a whole lot of privet flowers and left it on the dining table which was also his study table. as the evening went on , he got more and more sick. He then realise it was therperfume from the pollen grain.
