Where did the first two months of the year go? As March arrives, Spring is definitely in the air at Upton. We had such lovely sunshine on Saturday when we welcomed visitors back to Upton with the House, exhibition and gardens full and busy all day. Let’s hope that this was a sign of things to come for the rest of the year!
March has seen plenty of new things to discover at Upton. The shop has been restocked with some lovely goods such as scarves and matching bags.
The orchard is close to bursting into flower and we can see narcissus buds emerging.
The Garden Team has provided pots of hyacinths for the House; the blooms smell amazing.
It was almost warm enough to venture around the gardens with no coat. The gardens are alive with birdsong; the sounds are beautiful on sunny, still mornings. We can’t wait to see what the rest of Spring brings for us at Upton – hopefully, sunshine and, eventually, some tulips!
