early spring at Stourhead

Do you see this blue sky???

We certainly can't complain about the weather at the moment; although still touch of frost at night and days not above 10C, it really feels like spring is on the way.

The lake at Stourhead has been partially drained for maintenance, so the view is not as nice as usually, but the walk around is still just as pleasant.

This magnolia tree is just about to open its blossoms fully,  

and little pink from spring ribes.

Large yellow patches of daffodils everywhere.

Little robin came to say hello.

Isn't he gorgeous?
