Westonbirt Arboretum

Mr Z and I have previously visited Westonbirt. It was very soon after we moved into our home, and we went in the spring to take pictures of magnolia and cherry blossom so we had something to put on our new walls (well, that was my plan, anyway). We borrowed Father Z's big old camera and spent a happy hour tramping around and snapping away. Then we realised, after we got home, that there was no film in it.

That should indicate how long it has been since we visited.

When we went on Sunday, we clearly had the same idea as half the rest of the surrounding area as we had to queue for 20 minutes to get into the car park; but the nice thing about the place is that its size means it doesn't feel especially crowded once you're through the initial scrum at the gate. We quite quickly turned off the main path and found ourselves almost alone.

Who needs Snapchat crowns?

There were too many pictures to choose from, but none of them quite do it justice. I thought it was quite spendy at £9 per person, but it was really beautiful.
