It always gives me pleasure to see the rose buds getting ready to take over as soon as the lilac is finished. They were planted together long before we moved here and it is a perfect pairing.
These are sneered at in the UK as they are Spanish bluebells and not our native kind. But they were here when we moved in 20 years ago and no power on earth is going to get rid of them, so here they stay. They are pretty anyway. I'll have to whisper it, but I grew up with our native bluebells and I actually like these better!
