A walk in the Botanic Gardens

October 6, 2016


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.


The tulips just before the azalea walk.


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!

This tree is simply stunning right now. As you can see, it’s right by the Peacock Fountain.

One of my favourite spots in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens in the Herbaceous Border with it’s mix of colour flowers and greenery. Every year I’m amazed at how lush it becomes and how quickly everything grows.

Tulips in the Botanic Gardens

October 14, 2015


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 Gardens

August 28, 2015


It was a bit nippy in the gardens today so very few people were there to enjoy the spring splendour that’s emerging right now. It might have been cold (I was regretting not wearing my hat) but it was peaceful and beautiful as usual and a great salve for sitting at a computer desk all day!
