Our first visit to Cluny for 2018. Wonderful displays of Erythroniums and Hellebores. A few rhododendrons in flower but many plants are going to flower much later this year due to the prolonged winter weather. The boost of warmth last week obviously helped things along quite dramatically but the trees and shrubs, and the magnolias, and many of the other plants will be starting to be at their best in a couple of weeks time. Still a wonderful place to visit. So quiet and peaceful to wander around, accompanied only by the bird song and, of course, always the delight of seeing the Red Squirrels dashing about and at the feeders.
