Two days after my trip to Batsford Arboretum, I was at Westonbirt Arboretum with Lyn this time. Another difference was that yesterday when I visited, the sun shone the whole time and it was very warm, plus Westonbirt is the National Arboretum, so I think that means there are more mature trees to see.
Certainly my photos look a lot better than those taken at Batsford, and they have already appeared on Facebook by mysterious means, I Tweeted them, and then found they were on Facebook.
I have added so many photos, I'm going to have to be selective
I've taken masses of photos of red Acers
this yellow one was lovely:
and orangey ones:
and ones with feathered leaves:
At Westonbirt there are also amazing groups of trees, against the blue sky they looked stunning
This group of conifers were also fab
Lots of beech trees
and sillhouetted ones:
Then a couple of small trees together, a beech with drooping habit
this was a variegated holly also drooping
and beside them this Cedar of Lebanon was fantastic
Two contrasting Acers
And a subtle sunset on the way home.
Great day out, and 38 years since Lyn's last visit there when Helen was in a carrier on my back.
