Springing Back to Life
Signs of spring are appearing thick and fast here on Sark with the first trees breaking into leaf and the blackthorn and gorse beginning to bloom. The seasonal shops and other businesses are opening their doors and this weekend it’s the turn of La Seigneurie Gardens. The main attraction here is the stunning walled garden that at this time of year has fabulous displays of daffodils, tulips and other bulbs as well as a huge magnolia tree that is just starting to bloom. There is also a children’s maze, woodland walk, battery and an indoor display telling the history of La Seigneurie and Sark’s Seigneurs. Hathaways, the café and restaurant just inside the gates, also opens this weekend. Pictures by Sue Daly.
