Sweetness

Candytuft

Henrietta wandered through the Candytuft, and discovered that April is a month of sweetness in the Quimper Garden. This Iberis plant may have the sweetest name…

Jonquil

…but she thinks the lovely Jonquil has the sweetest scent.

.

.

Anemone

Scarlet Anemone is trying to flower again (the deer think this is the sweetest tasting blossom)…

.

.

Rhododendron

…and the pink Rhododendron has been so pretty and encouragingly sweet for a month, though now it’s beginning to brown around the petal edges.

Aubretia

Henrietta likes these delicate Aubretia flowers from close-up – at a distance the intense purple is almost too dazzling!

Eggs!

This kind of sweetness only appears once a year…

.

.

Apron

…Henrietta ran back to the cupboard to show her sisters that the chocolate eggs are sprouting!

  1. Oh! and Henrietta is by far the sweetest, dearest little creature amongst all those glorious colors. Thank you for such an abundance, clarity and variety of outstanding spring colors.

  2. You have such a beautiful variety of flowers in your gardens. Love Henrietta’s pretty white smock with the lace trim. The last photo of the Easter egg sweetness is so fun.

  3. what wonderful flowers in your garden. Henrietta is looking especially lovely these days! And how fun that your garden grows chocolate Easter eggs!
