The Seasons of Mount Usher

Spring Summer Autumn


Photography: Des Irvine
There is plenty to be seen in the Spring, both at ground level and amongst the branches.

The Robinsonian style is very apparant this time of year as thousands of bulbs in the lawn are in full bloom throughout the gardens. Purple and white crocuses line the paths off the Palm Walk.

Spring is also the time for the Magnolias to begin to show what they can do.

To the right you'll see Magnolia campbellii, the first of the Magnolias to flower in the gardens, flaunting their large cup and saucer shaped flowers.
