What's Blooming This Week

This week is the week when the cherry blossom peaked.

The blossom lasts such a brief time, only a matter of days, making this a most special time of the garden year. The Japanese festival of Hanami  celebrates these brief days as a metaphor for life itself, luminous and beautiful yet fleeting and ephemeral.

Each year we add more cherries to The Hill Garden and each year the display becomes more remarkable.  For more on The Hill Garden click here
