…and the garden is filled with cherry blossom, magnolias and rhododendrons – all especially beautiful this year after the harsh winter.  The whole place is alive with drifts of forget me nots and  the blazing colours of tulips.

The cupresses trees at the back of the long border are down, and already everything looks better for the light and warmth and rain.

Trays of seedlings fill the greenhouses, waiting to go out as soon as the temperature rises above freezing!!

And we’ve had many visitors already, a great encouragement to us, as we do like a bit of appreciation!Saturday, June 12th. Garden open at 1 p.m., no entrance fee..
