Nestled in the grounds belonging to Eton College, next to a stream leading to the river Thames with Windsor Castle beyond, is a small lightly wooded area left to nature. In spring it produces a precious display of daffodils.
Daffodils in bloom around our garden. The wonderful thing about daffodils is that they draw the eye to them, and away from all the tidying jobs that need doing!

The best flower display I have seen all year – a wonderful display of colour swaying at chest height in the breeze. Poppies seed profusely, so I am pleased this display is at the other end of the allotment from my plot.
I really enjoy having flowers at home, but enjoy much less the task of watering them. A drip irrigation system makes a big difference!
A sunny but cold afternoon spent at Cliveden House in Berkshire. The tulips were in full bloom, and the hyacinths were still able to add to the spectacle.

Walking around the allotment is always full of colourful surprises. I believe these are tulips. They surround an apple tree, which in itself is just about to blossom. Wonderful!
High summer is not just about fruit and vegetables, but is also a time to enjoy the magnificent displays of flowers. These pictures were taken at The Savill Garden located near Windsor.
