THE GARDEN WAKES UP IN THE TOWN GARDEN TOO SPRING IS AROUND THE CORNER
Photos taken by Gay Klok during August, 1998
Come for a walk into the garden.   This is the view of the Magnolia denudata through the door
 
The first thing that catches our eye, crocus in a terra-cotta bowl
 
Looking back at the house, the denudata making it look like a doll's house!

Primulas begin to flower
 
The Chines fringe bush is the next thing we see, Camellia in the background

Dear little white Camellia is always the first to flower

A specie Rhododendron from the Himalayas.  The leaves are quite big - about 14 inches long
 
Close up of the flower.  I hope you are able to see the pink stamens
 
The ornamental cherries begin to give us pleasure
 
The wonderful blossoms of the Almond tree
