Flower Bomb Hits the Garden

I came back from a trip to Ireland this week to find that the garden had exploded !! Not even 6 days away and WHAM!! colour and fluffy stuff everywhere ....and those pesky nettles :/  I wonder if this year is going to be a bumper year for the plants?  The lizards are like Godzilla and the bumble bees HUGE ... just hope the snakes and spiders don't follow suit !!

some pics I took yesterday

 under the apple tree is starting to look wild!

forget-me-nots are are spreading everywhere

cowslips and violets have replaced the snowdrops

 pear blossom

 cherry blossom

plants are sprouting up everywhere!  I'm thinking a gardener would be nice luxury!!!
