As we approach the latter part of March; the garden is bursting with life in many beautiful forms!
The cherry blossom is opening and looks magnificent with its white, fluffy petals daintily hanging from the branches.
At the entrance to our car park the Mount Fuji cherry frames our sign with its stunning blossom. The cherry trees are blooming early compared to last year which reminds me of just how ever-changing the garden is; never being identical in timing or form from one year to another. It makes the place always mysterious somehow and ready to surprise me time and again.
Our Koi carp are now showing off their bright colours and moving gracefully in the pond with the warmer weather heating up the water and making the fish feel a bit more lively.
More of the Azaleas are opening up and I am seeing more buds swelling on the later bloomers too.
We have had a mixture of weather lately with showers of rain and even hailstones being broken up with beautiful, warm sunshine and the garden seems to be loving the mixture!
