Cannizaro Park in March

Crocus time is almost over now in Cannizaro Park. The early springtime display of the little purple flowers at the Crocus Walk has faded, with the first daffodils appearing instead now there as well.
The pictures below are from a visit yesterday. I'm planning to go back to Cannizaro Park in a few weeks' time, when the daffodils are in full bloom.

In a more shady corner of the park, some crocuses are still looking good, presenting a lovely spring scene. A few rhododendrons are in bloom; one had lost many of its blossoms, creating a bizarrely beautiful path of pink petals. The camellias are looking gorgeous now.
