Pink house 2

Brook Green, west London

My favourite blossom is that of the Judas tree (Cercis siliquastrum)*. You don’t see it much in this country, although if you’re lucky enough to be in Paris at this time of year, you’ll see it everywhere. This tree looks so pretty against the pink house – the owner says the blossom doesn’t last for long, but it’s beautiful while it lasts.

I loved the hanging basket in front of the window, dangling from one of the gnarled branches.

  1. Beautiful –
    it does look very exotic.
    I love it when people paint their homes / front doors to compliment or match the front garden planting!
