Magnolias at Mount Congreve
There was a break in the weather on Saturday so I dashed to Mount Congreve in the hope that I would catch the Magnolia campbellii in bloom. The garden has probably the best collection of these remarkable trees in the world and I missed them last year. They flower so early that the weather can play havoc with them and this year it has been windy, wet and even frosty so I knew I was not going to see them at their best. But even so they were spectacular. I have written about the garden enough in the past so I will let the photos do the talking but in case you need more information this is a past post:
A few other things apart from magnolias.

This was just a humble pansy (viola). Well done if you got it right.
Did you realise?
Today is Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day? And Licorice Day
More good pics. Kicking myself over pansy. Thanks for following
We were there last Tuesday and the magnolias are amazing. Magnolia ‘John Congreve’ on the Bell Gate Lawn is looking great at present. There are some beautiful Magnolias on the Margnolia Walk, a huge flowered sargentiana var. robusta.
Wow, that magnolia walk! Wonderful photo, I expect it is even more spectacular in real life. 🙂
yes it is difficult to get a decent photo
