The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is LANDSCAPE.

The landscape of the corner of my back garden in April, featuring a variegated weigela:

    I love how the same garden scene can change completely from one month to another, because plants bloom at different times. It’s good to be mindful of that when planning a garden so it will always have something blooming (except in winter, of course)! Daffodils are up now, and tulips will be coming soon!
