Not a particularly friendly plant.

Common woodland and hedgerow plant which must hold the record for greatest number of different common names - "cuckoo pint" and "lords and ladies" being the most common names.  Poisonous so dig it up (wear gloves) if you have kids who could be attracted to the red berries later.  More info here ...

Thanks for posting that DVT,  I've got a plant that resembles the one with red berries in the garden so I'll have a closer look at it tomorrow

Mr H has gone a bit mad with his tulip choices this year!

There are some truly spectacular shapes and colours in the tulip species - the display in Bodnant really gives the wow! factor when you first go in.  However, watch out ... there is something called tulip fire to spoil things.  It has been found on some of the plants in Bodnant and the tulips are checked daily with some being removed promptly.  Unfortunately, because of this, the tulip display will not happen again for at least three years to ensure the virus has been killed off.

Hollins ... I sincerely hope that your tulips are not affected, but good advice in the link below.

Those Tulips look really special Hollins,  mine are just the ordinary ones but I'll have to buy some more for next year as they look best in groups.

Yes, Hugo, they do seem quite different. I asked Mr H where he got them from and he couldn't remember.
DVT, thanks so much for the advice. It is very useful for us to have a Bodnant expert on hand. We are okay so far, touch wood!

Bodnant's laburnum arch is coming along nicely - gone green since last week and the flower heads have doubled in size to look like catkins!  These pics were taken this afternoon (May 2nd) ... give it a month and it will be full of visitors!!!

DVT, whilst away last month there was an advert for Roberto Coin played regularly on the television.

By any chance, was it filmed in Bodnant Garden?

No, it's not Bodnant - have tried googling but cannot find where it is!

The video says that it was located on the Appian Way which is the Roman Road in Italy.    I've put Roberto Coin Appian Way in Google and there are some lovely photos but I can't pinpoint the location.

Rowen open day is on the 13th May 2018 and is for one day only.    Let's hope that the weather is good for the day so that everyone can enjoy the gardens and the walk around the pretty village
