Orroland's changing landscape month by month

Here you will find a summary and a few pictures of the seasonal delights in store each month around Orroland estate.

From April, a time for planting with daffodils in profusion, snowdrops giving way to wild garlic and bluebells with the first rhododendrons through to May when everything starts to burst into life. Rhododendrons, azaleas, hawthorn and the trees blooming with their tender new growth. June - August make the best of the wildflower meadow in all it's glory and September - November see the bright colours turn warm golden, reds and browns.  As winter silences the gardens, wildlife are easier to spot and on frosty misty mornings the magic of Orroland brings a new feeling, of expentancy and wonder. As the sunsets become earlier and daylight extends, the excitement for Spring stirs and the cycle of growth begins again.
