Enjoy sun from early morning until late afternoon and a profusion of colour, with geraniums, cosmos daisies, clematis and fuchsias. In early summer, flowering shrubs, including a blue ceanothus, clothe the fence. Planted for all year round colour and interest, the garden is a delight to look out onto in all seasons. In autumn and winter there are colourful pots of pansies, violas and cyclamens, clipped boxtrees and evergreens with berries. At Christmas time the tree is dressed with twinkling solar lights that switch on at dusk. In late winter and early spring primroses, polyanthus and hellebores are in bloom, followed by a variety of daffodils and spring bulbs. For more photos of the courtyard garden in spring - see Spring Breaks.
