Some beautiful woodland areas planted with crocus and other bulbs.
I never get tired of looking at crocus.
I was surprised to see the first grass cut this week. The smell was fantastic (nothing beats fresh grass). The gardeners have been working very hard on the rose beds for months clearing weeds and moss.
Isn't this a camellia? Lovely pink flowers...
Unfortunately one of their plants was covered with black... sooty mold?
Above: I'd never seen this plant before, but think it's winter Aconite.
The hellebores are beautiful but droop their heads awkwardly; it was tough getting a picture of the actual flower (down on my hands & knees).
Good News for UK/Ireland - A new Gardening Channel! The Horticultural Channel is being launched and broadcast on Sky Channel 166, or 402 on Freesat, from 6th March 2011. Gardening programmes will be shown from 9am on Sunday mornings (not sure if it's only Sundays?). Apparently the programmes will focus on allotment gardening and people growing their own food. Can't wait to see what they offer!
