A walk in the Botanic Gardens

The beautiful botanic gardens are a beacon of serenity and loveliness any time of the year, but surely few would argue that during Spring the gardens go to a whole other level of stunning. I’m always particularly impressed with the tulip beds.

These stunning orange tulips were very tall – I’ve captured the normal sized ones in front to give you some scale.

One of my favourite spots in the garden in Spring – it’s full of azaleas, bluebells, magnolias and tulips.

More blossom, because I can never get enough of it during Spring and it’s all too fleeting.dsc06631

How stunning is this tree!

Blossom Tree by the Water Wheel

Every year I like to get a photo of this water wheel in Oxford Terrace. For a few years I would go too early for the blossom and then I would go back too late! So now I’ve worked out pretty much the right time to go. There were a lot of people taking photos of it today, as I believe it’s probably right at its peak of beauty.

The tulips in the Botanic Gardens are stunning right now – I think the garden team there have out done themselves. This scene is right by the Peacock fountain. I hadn’t realised the couple were in the photo at the time, but now I think they really make it.

Spring in the Botanic Gardens

It was officially too nice of a Spring day to sit at a computer all day long. So I took off to the gardens for some exercise and some photos.

As you can see lots of people were making the most of their lunchtime break to wander around the gardens.

The daffodils are looking stunning right now.
