More photos from RHS Hyde Hall

It was a sunny and windy day when I visited RHS Hyde Hall for the first time last week. Many of the daffodils were almost finished, but there were tulips, forget-me-nots, blossom, camellias, and sweet-smelling magnolia.

Hyde Hall comprises many different gardens, including a dry garden, since it is situated in an especially dry part of Britain, and an Australian and New Zealand garden.

These fiery-looking plants are Uncinia rubra 'Belinda's Find'.

Here is Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb'. I have 'Oliver Twist' pittosporum - are many named after children's literary heroes?

A beautiful sight of hellebores, narcissi and muscari.

This stunner is Erysimum mutabile (wallflower).

Summer promise: alliums, dianthus, nerines, wisteria, a garden full of roses and clematis, as well as a wall of roses, including Rosa helenae.

The sight and scent of the apple blossom and viburnum was gorgeous.

There were also fast-moving rabbits and stationary Easter bunnies. If you visit now, you might see both!
