More things are flowering in my new back garden, the previous owners had certainly made it colourful.

Now here's a strange happening. Can you see the small tree with purple leaves and pink clusters of flowers in the top left of the photo below? 3 weeks ago it was looking fine - another Elder or an Acer - not sure
But look at it this week - suddenly dying and almost dead! I can see no reason.
Thank goodness everything else is OK including several climbers on the fences and trellises, mostly roses but also two honeysuckle, a jasmine and hidden away there are a couple of clematis, one climbing through the magnolia and another struggling through a rose and this honeysuckle.
There hasn't been one of Cecily Mary Barkers illustrations on my blog for a while so here's the Honeysuckle Fairy and his song
Thank you to everyone for comments yesterday about the film Nomadland. I'm no good at writing reviews - books or films, so end up just copying paragraphs from other sources. And I wasn't at all worried about going to the cinema, knew it would be fine, there were about 20 people there spread out around 50 or so seats for Screen 3 - I'm just pleased that it's open again after the refurbishment. They've got The Dig on next week - might go and see it, but Not planning to see a couple of futuristic horror things - the trailers were LOUD and scary!.
