Batsford Aboretum is Fabulous at any Time

but particularly when the last of the Narcissi are still blooming, the Magnolias are still in flower, and the Fritillaries are a delight.
If you haven't visited Batsford Aboretum, it's well worth it, it's up the Fosse Way to Moreton-in-Marsh and turn left and drive along for a mile and it's on your right. Home made lunches are wonderful, and the plant sales good as well.
Here's what caught my eye on April 25:
 Above the Giant Fritillaries, there were also orange ones, a must for my garden for next year. Below a particularly pink, large flowered Magnolia:

 Snakeshead fritillaries in close up by the Venus statue, and en masse further round the garden
masses just beside the road near the church
Camassias near the Venus statue about to flower
This trio of young Magnolias always look fabulous, they are facing the large house, with a fabulous wooded backdrop.
I could return time and time again.
