16th April 10 - Ash
Thank goodness we weren't going anywhere.
The country is closed due to volcanic ash. Pity the 1m trapped or not going
Anyway, it is a fabulous weekend. The tulips are just coming into their prime. unusual to get tulips and daffodils out together - it's a by product of the long cold winter.

|Tulips and narcissi out at the same time|
|Tulips and forget-me-nots around the 'grandson' tree by the front drive|
|Tulips in the beds around the main lawn|
|This is a photo from Sept 2008 when we planted the new rhododendron and azalea bed.|
|The bed in their first real season with the first rhododendrons out. Eventually they will all join up into a big bank. 10 years they said. Look in again in 2018!|
