While I am long way from competing with EC for her magnificent photos of Tulip Top Gardens, do have a look if you haven't seen the post, here is my small flora contribution. I think these are flowering plums and are used to great effect when planted in rows. I know of a street of them near ABI Brother's and I will photograph them next year.
Perhaps a flowering cherry of some kind. It had both white and pink blossoms. I am just smiling as sometimes our Hairdresser Friend greets me with, Hello Blossom.
Mother urged us to go outside and look at the azalea on the blind side of ABI Brother's house. The phone camera really failed to catch the beauty. It was stunning, the rest, not so much. ABI Brother didn't know about it and nor did we. Only Creeping Jesus, Mother, poking about discovered it. It never gets watered but must be in an ideal growing spot with not too much sun.
And these near his back door aren't half bad either and facing south, they don't really receive any sunlight. Mother is trying to encourage him to do more in his garden. She is putting in an effort by potting up multicoloured red and white petunias to be ready for Christmas.
I am not sure if it will be the next post, but I still have our last days in Newcastle to cover. I only took photos on one of the days, so it will be three days in one and quite short.
