More Westonbirt Colour

There is so much colour at Westonbirt at the moment – it seems a shame not to share it with you…


Camellia ‘Albert Einstein’

As I was walking round Westonbirt the other day, I saw a camellia that appeared to have a winter sprouting of Albert Einstein style hair.  On closer inspection I found that it was a Camellia Williamsii ‘Donation’.  This will have bright pink flowers by late winter but is spending early winter doing an impression of a great scientist!


Prep4Enchanted Xmas, Westonbirt

Enchanted Christmas starts tomorrow at Westonbirt Arboretum and there is a mass of activity preparing stalls, marquees, decorations and thousands of lights.  It’s going to be spectacular but….don’t turn up unless you have bought a ticket in advance. Until it gets dark, it is hard to imagine how extraordinary this event is.  However, if you want an idea of just how spectacular it can be  – look at a selection of my pics from last year.  Enchanted Xmas 2015
