Visitors relaxing in the spring sunshine

Spring delights at Hyde Hall

Longer days are coaxing out a host of spring treats, from tulips and crown imperials to clusters of marsh marigolds around the pond. Fresh foliage is unfurling across the garden, and the Acacia in the Dry Garden is smothered in sunny yellow flowers.
