there has come, at last, a spring he will never see.
Glory then in the springs that are yours
|Somewhat belated but Spring has Sprung!|
|Sign of hope in despair|
|'A gentle creature, with beauty all her own...'|
|Glorious grasses - even in decline|
|magnolia stellata in autumn colour|
|quince tree and rose Tess of the D''Urbervilles|
|Acer preparing for winter|
|Top of the left hand border in May|
|A bit further down the same border showing euphorbia fireglow|
and one of last year's birthday presents - a roof finial.
Here we have a magnolia - forgotten which one - in glorious close-up. It has very little room to grown, poor thing, as it's squashed in the right-hand border so it tends to lean towards the lawn.
|The glory of the magnolia|
|Small stumpery with mill wheel|
|Philadelphus and intertwined rose|
|A1liums in George Smith's garden|
|More alliums - this time at Newby Hall on my birthday visit there last June|
