photoblog image Arley Arboretum 4/4

Arley Arboretum 4/4

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 final picture from Arley is through the gate leading out in to the spacious grounds near the main entrance.

An open gate is always inviting smile
Brian Walbey: I'm told it's one of the rules to have the gate open as a lead in to the picture, it works here.

It looks a fine place Brian: I'll have to go there one day
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely spot Chris, perhaps you should join Lord Droitwich there, he doesn't live that far away.

Something about an open gate that invites you to go through.
