The waterfall is still working.
Rich yellow daffodils with orange trumpets and delicate pastel lemon ones, gently swaying by the pond.
The flower beds by the entrance are filling out, and the tulip bulbs are starting to pop up.
A clump of miniature daffodils.
Colours showing in the flower beds - red and blue in this one.
Pinks and pale blues here.
Around the corner - sunlight creating criss-crossing shadows and light.
I found a hellebore with an upturned face for a change.
The rest of them were hanging their heads.
I heard horses hooves and looking across the pond, saw three horses and riders passing by.
Tiny sapphire blue flowers.
Stripey miniature tulip leaves.
Magnolia buds and blue sky.
Patterns on sunlit crocuses.
Purple crocuses shining in the sun - a saffron yellow centre showing.
Snowdrops and crocuses.
Showers of waxy creamy bells.
Little tender green buds
Different bells - these are like translucent porcelain.
It looks as if there are droplets of water near the sepals but I had a really close look, and even had to touch them before I believed what I was seeing - it's actually a series of the tiniest, almost transparent bulges.
The wrinkled berries.
Top of the Australian pine looking healthy.
A strong smell of garlic comes from these plants, which have shot up so much that they almost hide the snowdrops now.
Pinky coloured leaf buds.
Things are beginning to happen in the herbaceous borders.
The big beech tree.
Just a few beech nuts left on the tree now.
Pink camellias in the sun (woops - I've only just found out that camellia has two l's in it).
Wild carrot's shaggy dried seed head.
Bright yellow primulas
Gorgeous veining in a wide open crocus.
Water droplets on euphorbia
More miniature daffodils.
Back to the flower beds near the entrance.
Looking closer at wispy moss spore capsules.
A last look at a patch of daffodils before heading home again.
Thank you very much for joining me.
