It's that time of year again!
For one brief week or so every spring - and no frosts or hailstorms permitting - I go up the garden lots of times each day to enjoy my wonderful magnolia Athene. It's my favourite magnolia. The flowers are so perfect and the scent divine. I just can't help burying my nose in it. Can anyone ID the purplish one? I got it in a sale but it had lost its name. Doing a bit of research it looks like Felix Jury???? Whatever it is, it is certainly a showstopper - especially given the daft price I paid for it! Given the lovely weather we have had I think the magnolias are the best I have seen in years.
It's also that time for another favourite of mine - Staphylea holocarpa roses. What a !overly plant. I am due to move house soon and am so sad these plants are too big to take with me.

Lovely Martin. They are just finishing up here. Sorry to hear that you'll loose some of your plants in the move, but that is inevitable I suppose. When I leave my current diggs (no plan for that yet), I'll probably have to say "SAYONARA!" to the lot.
