Killerton Spring

The weather forecast got it wrong this morning, so I walked the dogs and then took my camera to Killerton to make the most of the unexpected sunshine. I’ve taken you before, for the Christmas decorations and a fashion exhibition, but this time I wanted to see how the grounds were looking in their spring costumes.

The Magnolia blossom was spectacular

Everywhere you look, flowers both woodland and cultivated

Shrubs and assorted loveliness!

Killerton is a National Trust property a few miles east of Exeter, I hope you enjoyed your spring walk.

  1. Oh yes, I did, thanks for taking us along Gilly! It’s extraordinary – once it begins, it just explodes! Particularly enjoyed the delicate maple leaves – so tentative, so transitory. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. so sublimely lovely, all those blossoms, smooth green fields, swathes of daffodils and plants we rarely see here, every nuance of colour and form so pleasing and comforting somehow!

  3. Glorious photos of the magic of spring awakening. I’m drooling in anticipation. How is it spring flowers can have such an affect on us? At the moment I feel I’m in jail and waiting to bust out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Magnolias are just so beautiful!
    Don’t you love when the meteorologists err on the positive side!? Seems to happen infrequently, but when it does, man it’s like a gift from on high!
    Your spring has taken hold, bigtime!

  5. Everything, even the fallen tree trunk, is so beautiful! What a glorious transformation from the bleak landscapes of a few weeks ago Gilly.

  6. It’s truly very beautiful there Gilly and you’ve captured it so well! Love the blossoms. Stunning! ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. I think we’ve been forgotten … as I look out my window I still see 18 inches of snow, not a flash or colour or green anywhere; certainly no bulbs pushing up through soil that is still blanketed … truly forgotten, we may remain like this till the snows blow again …

I would love to hear from you . . .
