Monday May 11th was a very windy day and rather chilly so ideal for another walk in the Garden. Following the government announcment yesterday Jack is excited that Wednesday, when ‘lockdown’ relaxes slightly and people can travel more, will see the footfall at the Garden increase.
Start in South Africa, still the most colourful area in the Garden.
Onto the Palm Garden, an area that Phil le May has spent many hours making it look its absolute best.
Work continues on the removal of the steps and the new wall has now been painted and planting placed around it.
One of the terrapins is posing in the sunshine.
The first view of Echiums is around the pond.
More Echiums by the pond and at the start of the Mediterranean Garden.
Wisteria covering the shelter by the Cork Oaks.
The Mediterranean Garden with the French Lavender still spectacular and Echiums everywhere.
…and to finish in the Arid Garden. How those flowers on the spiral Aloe – Aloe polyphylla are developing and enormous flowers on the Yucca.
