We are lucky to have several magnolias within our grounds at La Herpiniere but not all flower at the same time. Last year, the so called, "Beast from the East", killed the flowers on our magnificent magnolia before they had the chance to open.
Well, as you can see, the tree has recovered and produced some stunning blooms almost a year to the day after the very cold spell. In contrast, we have had some beautiful warm and sparkling early spring sunshine and inevitably, thoughts start to turn to warm spring days and summer time.
This tree compliments our Gite perfectly, enhancing the feeling of peace and calm which our many guests comment upon. This year, we will be welcoming new guests and some who have visited before. If the recent warm weather has started you thinking of your holidays, then why not pay us a visit, either for a short break or longer stay. You can enjoy the beauty of this place and share it with us.
Meanwhile, we have some serious gardening to do, to keep it looking its best!
