Lovely surprises

When we bought Kinloch back in September of 2007, it had no garden, or rather it had a very bare and boring one. The first spring brought no surprises. It was awful, and it stayed awful till we slowly transformed it over the years with flowers, trees and berries.

This house has a lovely, established front garden as well as the orchard, so every week brings us lovely new surprises. Having bought ourselves a little forsythia to remind us of home, we felt rather silly when spring came and showed us we already have four forsythias! 

And this week's lovely surprise is not only a pretty magnolia but also a rarer star magnolia. It's going to be fun to watch through the seasons.
