At the weekend I was at Thorp Perrow Arboretum, near Bedale in Yorkshire. No need for words really. Just wander with me, in the warm sunshine.
Many of the daffodils are past their best, but an army of compatriots leap to attention behind them. I’ve seldom seen such variety in one place. Arum lilies quietly stand guard over the pond. The soft colours of Spring are all around me, pierced by the vibrance of Japanese acers.
At this time of year, and with such weather, my Place in the World would have to be in an English country garden. Ask me in Winter though and I suspect you’ll get a different answer. Revelling in my surrounds, my intention had been simply to capture an armload of beauty for Cathy’s photographic challenge over at Wander.essence. But I’m sure she won’t mind to share.
