This blog, mostly photographs with little text, is a record of another year in the life of our garden. For the derivation of the title 'Insnared with Flowers' (original spelling) click here.

Gaudy Tulips

Tulips don't come much brighter than this. The blue background is my wife's car, which could do with a trip through the car wash.
The inside of the flower is even more striking - 100% primary colours.
This one's a little more subtle - can't remember what it's called though, lost the label.

Kerria japonica 'Pleniflora'

The wild strawberries flower in the garden before their cultivated cousins - and have a more intense flavour

These tiny flies - Sepsis punctum - sit on plants all day and wave their wings up and down.....
...... and breed in the compost heap

The blackbirds, nesting in a dead ash tree covered in ivy, already have nestlings and are constantly shuttling back and forth with food. I noticed yesterday evening that they can sing when they have a beak full of caterpillars.
