This tree at Batsford Arboretum only flowers once a year for about two weeks – last year it
flowered in June and by chance, we visited then and saw it. So this year, I’ve been keeping a look out on the Batsford Facebook page as we didn’t want to miss it.
It has flowered a bit earlier this year, they think it will be in bloom from 14 to 24 May so we popped up to have a look.
It was a beautiful sunny day at Batsford and lovely to see that there were still some bluebells flowering:
As well as some magnolia trees which haven’t yet lost all their beautiful flowers:
Also good to see some beautiful buttercups, they always remind me of childhood:
