This week has seen a lot of changing weather; with scattered showers mixed with warm sunny spells, we have had many visitors borrowing umbrellas and many not needing them at all!
I took a walk down the garden today and i felt like the cobwebs had been blown away by the breeze flowing through the valley. The maples are looking so beautiful , with their variety of colours and the rich tones of springtime.
There are a few azaleas still blossoming and even some budded and waiting to flourish in the next week or so.
The lillies are now showing off their superb white blooms over the pond and the gorgeous, purple iris adds a pop of colour to the pond’s edge.
The wisteria, arched over a walkway, is dangling its stunning purple flowers and many of the petals are covering the ground beneath it.
There is a feeling of freshness in the garden this week; as the showers of rain add a lushness to the leaves and plants look full of vitality after the rain.
It won’t be long now until summer is truly here, and the garden’s energy is shifting towards the summer vibe already.
