Garden news.

Aaahh, Spring has sprung, the grass is ris, I wonder where the boidies is!

The plants are bursting into life. Here is a little snapshot of our garden, taken today.

I managed to catch the sun on the Amalancia against a dark sky.

I took this through the conservatory window. Camelia.

The Japanese flowering cherry. The best we've seen it in 40 years!

Magnolia "Susan", nearly fully out.

The big Magnolia, recovered after the frost hit it.

New Rhododenderon, planted last year.
