Spring hedges

Nice to see all the hedges coming back to life in the spring: Sunday was an especially lovely day, and I took a few pictures of the garden hedges around my area:

I think this is a cherry laurel. It’s an evergreen, but you can see the fresh green of the new little leaves.

Flowers in the hedge:

Privet – this is a hedge that was cut back during the winter so was almost completely bare, now the new leaves are starting to grow:


I think this is red-tip photinia, though feel free to correct me. Either way, it’s a lovely spring hedge species as the new leaves are bright red, and as striking as any blossom, flower or berry.

And my miniature box, still pretty small but some promising new growth.
