As you can see the blooms have finally started to arrive, this is just the beginning and what a sight!
The rhododendron’s really are extensive at Bracken Hill so much so that they had to be hacked away in the 1960’s to form the site for the lodge! But we still have plenty of really mature specimens which we will attempt to catalogue this year,
the effect will be quite amazing when they are all finally out.
And just as a contrast to all that pinkery the bluebells are finally here and they do look rather tremendous, the weather over the last week has hampered our image gathering but should the sun shine we will better document their extent in next weeks entry!
It’s a riot of colour! (well nearly)
