Beautiful British Spring Morning!

This just had to be done.  I constantly take pictures when I'm out and about but today was something else!  It was the first day of the plant sales at my local botanical gardens, a five minute walk from my house, and I grasped the opportunity to take pics as I walked through the park and in the botanical gardens!


The standing stones in morning light.



The mighty Oak.

Pulmonaria


A trio of Magnolias.


Pigeon on a bridge!





The colour on this plant is fantastic!


Amazing pearlescent berries.


Bromeliad.

White orchid.


This orchid was my favourite.  Completely blood red.

  2. I do love a HUGE oak tree. We have a rather big one that leans scarily over our garage.

  6. Hi Cathy, I don't know the name of the purple flowering plant I'm afraid. Does anyone else have the answer?

  8. Unfortunately nothing took my fancy this week. The sales change by the week so I will keep going back until I find something new and exciting!

    @Patientgardener No, its not the Welsh botanical gardens. It's a small but beautiful local gardens.
