March daffodils and blossom at Parcevall Hall Gardens in the Yorkshire Dales

In the heart of Wharfedale, one of the most beautiful of all the Yorkshire Dales, we visited Parcevall Hall Gardens on the last day of March 2012 to see daffodils in a very natural habitat.

We were not the only visitors and, given gunshot around the dale, I think the residents should stay where they are.
Naturalised gardens like this are the best way of enjoying the flower.

After a climb through the light and closely planted woodland there is a quite surprising view giving some indication of the terrain in the National Park.

The cherry blossom was worth the admission price alone. Here it bursts from the trunk.
The gardens were first established in 1927 and remain one of the undiscovered jewels in a magnificent part of Yorkshire.

The early bumble bees were out in force.

Primula vulgaris subsp. sibthorpii.

American Skunk Cabbage was an exotic find in the Yorkshire Dales so early in the year.
