A late Spring this year meant that by the end of April the garden had only just started to wake up. Now it is mid-May and the Mimosa is at its lovliest at this time of year.
The Flowering Cherry and nearby Rhodedendron are in full bloom
The Climbing Rose on the tower of the Folly is well established but it is a little early for it to flower -
- although there are many flowers in bloom at this time of year.
The planting in the central bed and the planters around the steps are coming to life now.

There has been an unprecented amount of snow here in the South of England - the earliest snowfall for 17 years and not even officially Winter Yet!
