Spring arrived today

On this day, each of the 6 Magnolia Campbelli trees growing in 6 prominent Cornish Gardens has more than the 50 blossoms in full bloom required to officially announce that Spring has arrived. The 6 giant Magnolias, planted between 1860 and 1976, are situated at Caerhays Castle Gardens, Trebah Garden, Tregothnan, Trewidden, Trewithen and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
