Beautiful Spring flowers in The Parks

The photograph of this magnificent Magnolia Stellata above, was taken by Tina Higginson while volunteerSuperb striped crocus ing in the South Flower Walk. When able to raise her head from toiling in the border she observed the continuous stream of walkers stopping to photograph such an arresting sight.

Tina took some wonderful close ups of primroses, miniature irises and memorably perfumed mahonia.

Everywhere there is perfume. The viburnum blossom exuding a strong scent.

Easter is a time for eggs and chickens

June, to her amazement, just discovered the allotments and had no idea that a chicken house was there!
