The roses are starting to flower in Greenwich Park Rose Garden. Just Joey is just gorgeous. And I am sharing this with Garden Photography.
The magnolias are mainly over for the year – glorious, sculptural, waxy, enticing – just beautiful.
What a strange spring it is – in Greenwich Park there are daffodils and tulips – and cherry blossom.
No snow, but spring flowers
The Tulip Trees, Liriodendron Tulipifera, are absolutely stunning right now in Greenwich Park.
I love wandering in Greenwich Park in the evenings and at the moment the autumn colours are wonderful, although winter seems just round the corner. The ring-necked parakeets and the squirrel are frenetically busy, and very noisy, gathering up the chestnuts.
How did I miss them? The Tulip Tree and the paeonies have come and gone in Greenwich Park. But life goes on, relentlessly: the mulberries are ripening, there are a few daylilies still flowering, Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’ is grand, and Cleopatra is beautiful in the rose garden.
