Westonbirt in Autumn

November 4, 2008

This weekend was my birthday and for a special birthday treat we hired a car and took a meandering drive down the Wye Valley and across the River Severn to Westonbirt Arboretum. It’s becoming something of a tradition, but I don’t think I’ll ever fail to be dazzled by all the stunning autumnal colours on display. Each year I am amazed anew.  The trees are ablaze with colour and when the sunlight catches the leaves, they seem to glow like embers. We were blessed with some good weather and, although incredibly cold, the sun regularly broke through the clouds to work its magic.

All in all, we had a wonderful day and someone small seemed to enjoy herself very much!

    thank you – she’s not looking too beautiful today though – she’s got a horrible cold. I never knew something so small could produce so much snot! Ick!

    Westonbirt is a truly beautiful place, especially at this time of year. We will miss our visits when we move house soon. Happy Birthday too !
