Glorious weather has brought out the first spring flowers. The little petticoat Narcissus, Narcissus bulbocodium and the native Daffodil, Narcissus pseodonarcissus, are out, along with the first of the spring narcissi. The Winter Aconites, that Simon the gardener planted some years ago are now doing well, and the snowdrops and crocus are doing well at the moment. Two trees are flowering : the winter cherry at the north entrance, and the delightful wintersweet, Chimonanthus praecox in the memorial garden. Catch the scent while it is out.
