Wolud you care to take another photo-walk with me around the Sir Harold Hillier Arboretum and gardens? We were only there three weeks ago, but already there are changes, and new things to see....
Some of the multitude of hellebores now flourishing in the gardens
Helleborus "Slate Blue" - and it was!
Tiny, species Narcissi
Balls woven from willow and ?, a metre or so across, hidden under the trees on the "Sculpture Walk"
Stunning white birch bark against a blue, blue sky - and one of many traceries only visible in winter
"The Bathing Girl" catching her death in the frozen pond!
The deliciously gnarled burrs on an aged tree trunk
The watercourse outside the Education Centre - the stones engraved with a multitude of plant names
Pebbles in the sunlit water
Pinus engelmanii - looking like a tropical offering in the winter chill
