Colour sensations at Batsford

Batsford is a favourite place of mine. Whenever you visit this arboretum you discover something new. At the weekend colour was the main event.

There are a large number of Japanese maples at the arboretum some of them large and extremely beautiful at the moment.

I like the shape of some of the trunks and branches that are twisted and curled.

The large beech trees and sweet chestnuts are spectacular and the leaves are changing colour and falling , making their structure even more impressive.

There is so much to see, trees, shrubs and flowers still out . Plenty of birds and squirrels as well.

Amazing colours,a great place to explore again and again. They also make fantastic cake . We sat on the terrace with coffee and cake enjoying the wonderful views !
