After two weeks of white the colour is returning to the gardens. First to show their heads are the Winter Aconites, Eranthis hyemalis their golden sunshine yellow washing away our Winter blues. Resilient to all the frost and snowfall, they are brightening up the greyest of days, warming up the senses in the move towards Spring. They are creating beautiful carpets of golden yellow under the trees of the Nuffield Lawn, adding splashes of colour on the now returning lawn green. Spikes of new growth are emerging from below, watch out, the Snowdrops and Narcissi are coming!
