Ah yes they are there to educate in all things botanical like all botanical gardens but being the newest one in the UK Bristol is also a beautiful garden. When Monty Don visits us in July his talk is called "Why Garden?" and I can think of no more appropriate place to give such a talk. Just to enter it at any season helps you to leave the cares of the world outside.
More goodies from the Bristol Bot. Garden yesterday.
In the Chinese Herbal Garden at the Bristol Bot. Garden yesterday.
In the Woodland edge Garden at the Bristol Bot. Garden yesterday. Thousands of anemones, daffodils, pri
mroses and crocuses still.
Supper calls so will edit the rest of my pictures tomorrow.
Helleborus argutifolius and a pretty pink one in among the bergenias.
Now the hellebores - from pure white to almost black and all shades in between.
Oh such a beautiful afternoon in the Botanic Garden and of course there were mind blowing things to see as there always is. i shall show you first the pink Magnolia cambellii which I fell head over heels in love with and even snapped its reflection in the lake.
I have just had my April copy of my GWmag. and read my letter about my children's enjoyment in the garden. Lots of lovely ideas for containers in an extensive article there too, flumpy1.
Such good growing weather - wet through the night again but sunny and dry now. As I am going to the Botanic Garden this afternoon when cloud is forecast it should be ideal to get some good pics of the spring flowers. The camera battery is on charge and i shall clear my memory card in anticipation. I know there will be sights to blow your mind there.
