Bloomin' May Thursday, 28 April 2022 Written by Mirehouse The sunshine is glorious and will hopefully stay for the early May Bank Holiday weekend in the Lake District. The honey and bumblebees who are venturing out enjoying the shrubs specially chosen for them in the Bee Garden at Mirehouse. Benches encourage all visitors to sit and enjoy the tranquility of this sheltered walled garden during this lovely time.In May the rhododendrons at Mirehouse are at their best. The main drive is awash with stunning colours and shapes, and further along, the bluebells in Crosthwaite Woods are out at the moment. If this weather holds, the rare wildflower meadow will be coming into bloom very soon indeed.
