The magnolias and camellias have been great this year with wonderful shows of colour in the garden shining through the continued grey and wet weather.

The occasional spells of sunshine highlight them beautifully and as I write looking down the valley I can see the whites and paler pinks of the taller magnolias along with the deeper pink shades of early rhododendrons being lit up after a break in the clouds.
