the star magnolia has finally come into bloom and what a sight!
Just adjacent to the front door of the Lodge is this tremendous specimen plant.As the temperature rose on Saturday morning the buds began to open and revealed these beautiful flowers.They should be in bloom for some months to come.
Also the warmth has woken the slumber of the ladybirds, so garden pests beware!
The fantastic weather over the last week has led to real photographic opportunities.We will add some more images to the galleries when our IT guru returns from a much needed sabbatical to the land of the rising sun!
the star of the show!
