Another lovely visit to Batsford Arboretum, this time in the rain. I was drawn back to see how the rare Chinese tree Emmenopyerys henryri had changed since my last trip about two weeks ago,I was not disappointed. The flowers were out in full at the top of the tree canopy. It was laden with creamy white flowers. These were scattered under the tree, waxy and scented like jasmine.
Also saw a super Indian bean tree with very long skinny beans. As green is my favourite colour it was a treat .
Splashes of other colour appeared with these hydrangeas.
Batsford has something new to find on every visit, I will be back soon – looking forward to Autumn amongst the trees.
