The first day of Spring has passed and the park changes almost daily.
Have you noticed that a new flowering cherry tree was planted in the rose garden in the middle of winter? Its first blossoms are showing now.
There are lovely, furry catkins in the rose garden
and the blackbirds appreciate variety of ground cover.
In the wilder corner, you can just see a flowering currant coming into bloom as well.
As you leave the rose garden, you can’t miss the cheerful yellow of the Forsythia.
Among the bushes just outside the rose garden, the flowering cherry is in full swing.
Elsewhere around the park are various kinds of berberis
and even the humble daisy is pleased to see the sunshine.
The blackthorns are brightening up the hedges around the park railings.
and if you keep your eyes open while you’re walking around the estate, there are some treats in the gardens. This lovely camellia is in a street very near the park.
