The big day!

Thanks to the sunny mild winter weather and an inviting article in the County Echo, we were pleased to receive several visitors to our first Open Day for the NGS. The garden was sparkling with primroses, snowdrops and early camellias and redolent with the sweet smell of sarcococca Confusa and lonicera fragrantissima. We look forward to welcoming many more visitors over the coming months. We have however a garden mystery - who or what is nibbling off the heads of primroses and leaving them scattered on the ground? None seem to be eaten except those from a gorgeous new pink primula which has no petals left at all. Any ideas?

A melodious thrush has been singing loudly from the top of a perimeter conifer for the past few days - could it be a sign of spring?
