In the garden again

  The blossom on the wild cherry is perfection in its white delicacy.     In the garden the intense yellow green sings of May,  here smyrnium perfolitatum, a triennial. And here euphorbia characias.  If I were an insect I would live in it.   Or maybe in these magnolias.  Look at the thick creamy sculpted flowers.  What a home they would make.   Out in the orchard the apple trees are coming into flower.     And in the pots in front of the house an explosion of orange tulips: Ballerina, Hermitage and Couleur Cardinal.  Can we just hold the moment for a little longer?
