Tillens Block Part 4
Yes it is just a block of land used primarily for residents to grow their own vegetables and aside from the cherry blossoms and hawthorn bushes it is pretty devoid of floral attractions. But that is only if you ignore the varrious grasses that flower around the place. As they say "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
You have to not only know where to look but be open and aware of your surroundings.
That said, there is one BIG reason to visit Tillens Block in Spring. The Magnolia blossoms.
I am sure that any passers or neighbours living in the lane would understand and not call the police if you linger there for a while until you have taken as much of this stunning view as you can.
As you can see the tree is positively covered with Magnolia blossoms.
I actually went back several times to look at it first when it was in covered in flower buds and then to see the flowers.
