After the so-called winter everything is already starting to look springlike in Kew Gardens

Today's sunshine drew out an audience for the newly blossoming Magnolia Trees

Another sunny Saturday to check on the progression of this Spring in Kew Gardens. The warmish weather of the last week has brought everything on quite quickly it would seem

Here are a few more pictures of the blossom in the Gardens today and a Panorama of the currently dormant Rose Garden with the Japanese Cherry blossom just about at its peak round the perimeter

I'm lucky enough to have a magnolia (at least 40 years old) next to my house! Since it was pruned/shaped two years ago it's put on a splendid display... enough, apparently, that people walking past have stopped to admire it.

(I wonder how old the one is at Kew? Must be pretty ancient, I imagine).

I used to have a Magnolia stellata in another place. Beautiful.
Without these introductions, British gardens would be dull places if we stuck to only those species that arrived by themselves after the last ice age. But please, no naturalising hybrid daffs and so on in the countryside. I can almost accept, and well I do, snowdrops.
