Mount Stewart Flowers

These are the flowers I found blooming this January as I walked round Mount Stewart Gardens last Saturday.  I was surprised to see quite a number of Rhododendron trees is full bloom with Camellia not far behind. There were the beautiful little Snowdrops and the Mahonia lighting up the gardens with the different colours of orange and red around the sometimes still green buds and other times the yellow flowers had burst forth.  The Hamamelis mollis was stunning but to my great surprise I found this gorgeous little Rose (last image) still delighting me with its blooms.   




















Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments on this post.
