If you follow Martyn's blog you will know that on Tuesday we visited our nearest RHS garden - Harlow Carr.
Having joined the RHS we decided that we would pay regular visits to Harlow Carr to see how the garden changes over the seasons.
Last time we visited at the beginning of March when the early spring bulbs were the stars of the garden.
We missed one part of the gardens during our last visit including this area.
For me the display of white daffodils, blue muscari and primroses were one of this month's highlights. This may well be a combination that I'll steal.
The clouds of snakeshead fritillaries were also a highlight. The pink and white flowers were naturalised in various parts of the garden.
Along the banks of the stream the unflatteringly named skunk cabbage - Lysichiton americanus grabbed attention. Fortunately the scent which is the reason for the common name wasn't apparent.
... and various types of anemones...
Wood anemones - anemone nemorosa
and the bed of anemone de Caen that was full of flower on last month's visit and still producing a vibrant display.
Of course we did have to visit the garden shop just to see if there was anything we would like to buy - and was there? Well what do you think?
