In the early morning Tulipa clusiana Lady Jane showing her underskirts.
An hour later she begins her show,

This large agarita bush, Mahonia trifoliata, was just a little behind some of the others and so her blossoms managed to survive unscathed. There is an intense honey fragrance on the air today.
A cluster of unknown narcissi on the corner of the once named Spanish oak garden. I shall be sorry when their blooming finishes because they have just been magnificent this year. I think the spring bulbs have benefited from our very cold winter.
Viburnum 'Spring bouquet' Has been its most magnificent this year.
