A walk in the gardens 17th February 2006

 

 

It was a fairly bright day but cold, not very surprising for this time of year. I expected quite a lot more to be flowering since my lastRh moupinense walk round the gardens but I was disappointed. Some early daffodils were flowering near the top of the main drive. They seem to get earlier each year.

 

It used to be difficult to find a daffodil for March 1st , St. David's day.

In the Malcolm Allan garden Rhododendron moupinense was beginning to flower.

 

 

 

 

 

Some of the camellias on the south drive were flowering but there are plenty more to come. In the fulvum garden I found a flowering cherry, Prunus Kursar. The fulvum garden is not marked on the map but it is to the left of the path leading from the south drive to the pond garden. It is so called because a Rhododendron fulvum grows therePrunus Kursar.

 

 

Rhododendron “Christmas Cheer” mentioned on my January walk is now in full flower. Rh christmas cheer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Further down the green drive Rhododendron giganteum is also flowering.
