This glorious weather has the flowers on the Ladies’ Border blooming extra early. If you visit this week you can expect to see (pictured above, top to bottom, left to right):
Adonis amurensis (a cheery yellow and rare perennial flower)
Viburnum (they smell divine!)
Jasminum nudiflorum (yellow winter jasmine sans aroma)
Hellebore (also known as Lenten Rose)
Prunus mume (a beautiful Japanese apricot)
and the positively intoxicating smelling Mahonia bealai.
