The magnolia display at Marwood this year was spectacular, and, unlike previous years, the blooms were not damaged by frosts or strong winds.

I spent a few hours in the garden on the 11th March this year, and came away with around 150 photos - here are some of the better ones.

I haven't named the blooms, I'm afraid - although the Marwood staff have labelled most of the trees, I didn't take any notes of which was which.
