Magnolia in the Royal Crescent, Bath


I went on a day trip to Bath this weekend. The weather was bloody awful – torrential rain and strong winds. It wasn’t the weather for spotting inspirational planting ideas, more for taking refuge in tea shops. But this magnolia, trained against a wall of a basement flat in the Royal Crescent, stood out, even through a steamed-up car window.

Now that I’m back in London, there are magnolias everywhere. It seems that all they needed was one warm day, and whoosh! They’re off. At last.
