April to May

 

This is one of the busiest periods in the garden and all the different areas are bursting into life, particularly our Bluebell Wood, which is usually in full flower from about the last week of April until the middle of May.   Elsewhere tulips are in full bloom, the Water Garden becomes increasingly colourful and species and tree paeonies reveal their exotic and ephemeral flowers.   It's difficult to enumerate all the different plants coming into flower at this stage and to some extent it is the glorious and varied fresh foliage which captures the eye, but the pictures here will hopefully give a sample of what it is like.
