June has arrived and we have been loving the warm weather and beautiful sunshine!

The garden has been flourishing with flowers and new growth throughout May and now we have reached the month of June it is showing off different flowers and colours – some of the Azaleas are still looking beautiful and we now have Irises in bloom adding some amazing purple and yellow colours to the mix.

The Japanese Maples are looking divine right now; with reds, greens, yellows and purples now covering many of the spaces with foliage. The canopy is glowing with pinky/red light as the sun shines through the leaves. Its beautiful.

The Koi carp were swimming around a lot and i managed to get a few good shots of a couple swimming under the weeping willow – this is rare as they will never pose for my camera!

I also watched many Damsel flies flitting around the water and after many failed attempts i managed to get one good shot of them – please see below at the pictures.

The bank holiday weekend saw many new visitors come to see us and it was great to see some old faces too!

I have been walking my little girl around the garden regularly as it seems to send her off to sleep! I can’t quite believe she is 4 months old already!

Hope you are all enjoying the warm weather and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Right now our collection of Show Bonsai are looking superb!

Many have been repotted this year and re-styled and now that the deciduous trees are in full Spring leaf, they are just looking amazing.

This time of year is always a great time for the Acers as they show off their brightest colours and our named variety grafted Japanese Maples are now in their full spring leaves.

Please enjoy looking at my photographs of our Show Trees and a few shots of our Maples for sale, below –

It is just unbelievable how colourful the garden is looking right now!

Everywhere you turn there is a treat for your eyes with the Azaleas flowering with their cream, pink and red blossoms and the Japanese Maples in their many, many varieties (over 100) all covered in new, vibrantly coloured leaves which are planted in abundance all through the garden. The canopy of Acers casts a pink/red glow as the sunlight shines through the leaves.

I took a walk yesterday and managed to get lots of photographs of the flowers and the trees as i made my way around the winding pathways. The sun was shining and there was just enough of a breeze to tussle the leaves. It was wonderful. I met several people enjoying their first visit and i had the pleasure of seeing a few familiar faces too.

We have had many new bits arrive in the shop this week; including a stunning large Rose Gold wind chime!

May is here and with it has come an abundance of blossoms!

The Japanese Azaleas are covered in buds and some are fully open, whereas others are at the beginning of their blooming season!

The Japanese Maples are out in their stunning variety of colours now and areas of the garden are now glowing with the light that shines through the leaves.

It really is a sensational time of year and the garden is brimming with colour and the freshness of spring time.

Hello Springtime!

Finally we are seeing the beautiful sunshine and warmer weather and the garden is loving it!

The Pink Cherry Blossoms are now looking stunning; like fluffy, pink candy floss hanging on the branches. I love the colour of the petals especially with a beautiful blue sky behind them.

Not only are we seeing the cherry blossoms in flower but now the pink and purple azaleas are blooming their hearts out too. There are now bright colours punctuating the landscape in the garden, which is one of the best features of springtime! The flowers are so beautiful and delicate and the garden is now brimming with anticipation.

The Japanese Maples are now in leaf and they are breathtaking! The colours of the fresh new leaves are just unbelievable (they look like I’ve Photoshopped them but I haven’t touched the saturation at all – the colours are really that bright!). The trees are now glowing as the light is shining through the leaves.

Please enjoy looking at some of the pictures i shot today –
