Here are a few of the early May Shrubs just coming out now.
There are a lot of my favourite plants budding up including my roses, which I think will be out soon and Geranium Phaem pictured above and of course the paeonies. We also have the glorious crab apple trees (Malus). Not much can surpass the Malus Royalty or varieties with the rich red leaves.
A few shrubs and climbers below that have just burst into bud.
