"Popping out for a pop of colour" most definitely was not on the List of Doom for yesterday, but you have to make hay while the sun shines especially at this time of year.
Nymans is our nearest NT place and a godsend for when you just want to go out, but not have to think about it. It never stands still..the planting is constantly evolving, there's an ongoing ever changing cycle of exhibitions and development of the grounds. The latest plans [subject to fund raising] are the opening of the ruined sections of the house which were left standing after the distastrous fire in 1947.
It was so life affirming to see the borders brimming with colour and as for the scent of the Daphne. I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Take heart Spring really is within touching distance. Enough from me....I'll just let the pictures do the talking.
