Bob and I spent Monday with Mary and her son at Batsford Arboretum.
We spent too much time catching up to focus on taking many photos, but I did snap a few with my phone.
I love autumn in the UK, with the trees changing colour, something that doesn't happen in Dubai. I do miss the Spring in South Africa (same time of the year) and the purple of the Jacaranda trees.
Living in Malvern, most of the scenery has turned yellow and brown, so a visit to an Arboretum is a welcome sight with all the Japanese Maple turning red.
Entry costs £8.50 and obviously dogs are welcome. There was a cafe, coffee shop, clean toilets and good social distancing measures in place.
Sadly now though there will be no more meet ups or visits for a while.
I love a red leafed tree in fall - they make a great pop of color on the landscape. LovelyReplyDelete
It does look so prettyDelete
Such pretty colors!ReplyDelete
It sounds like a great day out.ReplyDelete
That tree is so pretty. It is nice to see something a little bit different x
lovely to see so much colourDelete
Such rich and gorgeous colours! Glad you got to spend time there, catching up.ReplyDelete
always lovely to get out and meet peopleDelete
How lovely! That Japanese Maple is stunning. We also don't see the changing season either :(ReplyDelete
it all looks so beautifulDelete
You have captured the colours beautifully and I have a soft spot for a Buddha! Our local Arboretum is owned by the NT and is staying open during this 2nd lockdown. Tickets have to be booked in advance to ensure numbers are coved compliant which is reassuring.ReplyDelete
This arboretum isn't owned by the National Trust, but there are lovely gardens at Croome near me that will remain openDelete
It looks like a wonderful place to visit. I love the vibrance of the Maple, gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto
The maple is just stunning, was such a pleasure to seeDelete
This was somewhere I really wanted to visit! Was thinking of going this weekend, although no doubt the best of the colour would be gone. But of course the government have now told us that won't be happening!ReplyDelete
It'll be worth checking if it's still open, many places are in the 2nd lockdownDelete
