The first pictures of spring in my mum's garden. I'm not sure what the yellow flowers are and forgot to ask.

That yellow flower is a Kerria, part of the Japonica family.

Thanks flopsymopsy, I realised when I got home I forgot to ask its name but knew I'd find out here and also got an ID on Flickr without even needing to ask! I'm better with insects than plants myself and quite a few of those turn up in photos needing names as well.

The camellias next to the kerria. Someone has to pick up all the fallen flowers sooner or later, it might be me.

A holder for funerary urns? It looks like a couple of places are occupied already.

OR

28 holes- is it some sort of calendar?

I like Ozz's guess for the urns, Ren?

Jakeroo has it. It is a very famous and unique store for bee skeps. Well known in Gloucestershire, it is in fact situated in Hartpury Agricultural College.It seems old but is in fact 19th Century. Here's the story
Well done!

Ren: Really? well that's cool. I'd have never guessed bees except that ozzzzzzz noticed that two of the niches had something in them, which to me looked like the wicker thingies my greatgrandmother made. She tended bees until age 96 in Saskatchewan. She died at age 97.

ertrum: LOL loved those SNL skits

RMG: he/she is a beauty! Can't wait for more.

This is a filly named Bailey, born on April 8, 2011! Her mom is called Kahlua, and is one of the horses my daughter rode to a championship a few years ago.
