Spring Beauty

Winter heathers fade, April gives way to May and this wonderful rhododendron turns from a mass of dull green leaves into a profusion of gorgeous pink flowers. It is the first burst of colour in my garden and it never fails to thrill me. It heralds the arrival of summer along with the swallows who have finally finished their long journey north.
