Spring Has Sprung!

EntranceThe gardens are open for the 2015 season and it’s great to see visitors starting to arrive again.

On a sunny afternoon the winter box (Sarcococca humilis) fills the whole terrace around the house with scent and the crocus and hellebores are filled with honey bees, bumble bees and hover flies fighting over the nectar and pollen.

Widow irisThe striking widow iris are flowering on the corner of the terrace.
