    Wonderful sights (and photos), thanks @chicky !

    What is the name of that shrub with white flowers:

    I guess those pink flowers belong to a Viburnum × bodnantense 'Dawn'?


    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    My guess for the white-flowered shrub (or small tree, perhaps) would be the winter-flowering cherry, Prunus subhirtella autumnalis.  But @chicky might have seen a label...

    The place was label free 😀. But I would also guess at Dawn for the viburnum and autumn cherry for the blossom.

    Sadly not retired yet Suesyn, so I have to take my chances when they appear.  However, the busyness didn’t spoil the beauty or the smells, just the serenity 😉
    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.

    Lovely photos Chicky,  Hellebores, snowdrops and winter honeysuckle showing here.  Love walking round the garden in winter and finding a few suprises.

    Will you be visiting the hellebore open day near you @Yviestevie ?

    Don't think I'll be doing the tour but I'm sure I'll end up buying another hellebore from Ashwoods

    It looks very interesting but l don't think we'd be able to go on the scheduled dates unfortunately. It is on my bucket list to visit the garden centre at least though!

    Visited John Massey's Garden at Ashwoods Today.  Here are a few photos.






    As you would expect lots of Hellebores and snowdrops.  Not a dull corner in sight.  Lots and lots of perfume especially from the Witch Hazels and Sweet Box.

    That's beautiful, Yvie!  I love that cornus and grass combination...
