photoblog image Arley Arboretum 1/4

Arley Arboretum 1/4

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

After visiting Bill at the Clent Hills last spring we went on to Arley Arboretum in the Severn valley the following day.  The spring flowers were still in bloom and over the next few weeks you will see a few of the shots I took there.  This is looking through a gate to the courtyard garden and the wonderful display of tulips in the centre flower bed.

Today sees my 600th.posting in the just over two years I have been subscribing to Shutterchance.

Those orange flowers (tulips) are perfectly framed by that tan-hued brick gateway.

Well done on no. 600, Brian; times flies smile I like the framing of the gateway and the splash of colour beyond. I'm sure a lot people are looking forward to spring, but I still want to enjoy winter first!
Brian Walbey: I think the later pictures from here will appear just as Spring is springing, if you know what I mean.
They welcome you in Brian, don't they? Well framed
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Pamela.

My congratulations! I like the perspective and the composition of this pic- it could be a looking through in Netherlands- orange tulips - that is typically Dutch- but why not in Old Merry England? Beautiful are the violet flowers which are curiously looking through the gate and the fountain at the distance!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Philine, in a few days time there will be a follow picture taken at the other end of the bed of Tulips.
