March is usually the time of year when visitors can view the garden in it’s most Wintery state; as plants begin waking up and we get to see some flowers appearing, but the warmer temperatures that we have had this month has allowed the garden to literally burst in to life!
The white and cream Cherry Blossoms are getting very very close to blooming now – I have shot many pictures so you can see where about they are. It will be within the next week or so that they are at their fullest.
One of the magnolias is at its best now (in the woodland area of the garden) – this is a purple variety and its looking like the blossoms are dancing when the wind blows.
The Camellias are still flowering and some are now at their peak, whereas others are now past their best (already amazingly!)
Many of the azaleas are budding and ready to astound us with their vivid colours, and others are already in blossom (although it will be a while before they peak).
The Japanese Maples are displaying they gorgeous baby leaves almost everywhere now, and some are further along than others.
We have had our BIG wind chimes arrive and are now back in stock – for those of you who love that deep, resonating sound 💗 and we have had our statue delivery too so we have lots of lovely Buddhas, dragons and plaques available now including a couple of new pagodas (which look fantastic!)
