Westonbirt



Westonbirt is worth a visit. I took this yesterday 15/10/07.

There seem to be mixed opinions among the trees as to whether or not it is Autum yet.
Some have even lost all their leaves already.

Re: Westonbirt

Good idea, it's certainly the right time of year.

For those of us that live further north Thorp Perrow Arboretum near Bedale in Yorkshire is also worth a visit, great time of year for Autumn Colours and fungi and there's a Bird of Prey centre there too.

cheers

Dan

Re: Westonbirt

Thanks Bill, my wife and I are going tomorrow. As a bonus the weather forecast looks clear and sunny after overnight rain.

Re: Westonbirt

That's nudged me as well. We have family from overseas staying so a visit to my local winkworth might be just the ticket.

Good shout on the weather Brian.
We went to Bodenham Arboretum today for the first time. See Welcome to Bodenham Arboretum & Visitor Centre....
Fascinating place if you are into trees and it has a good restaurant.
I don't think that it has reached its peak for massed colour yet (17/10/07) but there are lots of individual highly coloured trees.

Thanks for that info Bill. We went to Westonbirt today, probably similar show as Bodernham as regards the extent of colour, I took over 200 shots anyway.Lots of maples at their peak and a wide variety of colours. .I was amazed the amount of people there but its a large area so was not crowded.
