Now Showing – Signs of Spring

imagesCAXRQQK2 Spring is here! We thought it would never come but there’s no denying the emergence of flowers around the garden. These delicate dwarf  Narcissus cyclamineus are some of the first daffodils to show their faces and will soon be followed by great swathes of others. Camellias, early rhododendrons, the first cherry blossom, colourful hellebores and iris are among the plants leading the way. Here are some you can see around Bodnant Garden:
