Evening all and the weather has taken a turn for the worse, more's the pity. As a result my bud watch photo isn't as clear as I'd like.

The second photo shows the latest Magnolia to flower in my garden, it is the lovely M. merrill.

I have only one truss on the fantastic species R. pachysanthum this year, but the flowers are a bonus on this species as it is all about the foliage.

Gorgeous magnolia, but there isn't an ugly magnolia, fantastic trees. Love the rhododendron splashed with pink. We are all waiting for our favourite plants to open at this time of year. I am at present watching an Arum Creticum.

Thanks Roofy, the week isn't looking good but there is nothing to be done about it. 

Thanks Mary, We are in accordance on Magnolias. I must look up Arum Creticum.

Looking great Sean and I believe frosts forecast for this week so here's hoping you don't lose any of those buds.

Fantastic photos as always. Oh I do hope the weather is kind to you too , Sean. Dusting of snow here this morning and bitter cold but the sun is out and the sky is blue so looks like a nice day ahead. Hopefully that frost won't happen tonight!!

Thanks Jackie, far from blue skis here I'm afraid.
