Leicester Botanic Gardens 2/7

Taken in the Harold Martin Botanic Gardens, Leicester during a camera club visit there on a fine August afternoon last year. Two 'lone seats', I was really spoilt.

Picture perfect.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn, praise indeed.
You framed this perfectly beneath the trees Brian... well done....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, I liked this little corner of the garden.
Hmmm - to sit in the sun... or sit in the sun.... What a lovely day!
Brian Walbey: Yes I had a choice of seats, spoilt for choice.

You couldn't resist, Brian. I hope you sat on them, too
Brian Walbey: No I definitely couldn't Lisl, but I can't't recall whether I sat fro a while or not. Richard Trim said he sat here when he lived in Leicester.

a fine English ambiance - and please one seat on the benches for me!
Brian Walbey: Indeed Philine, and I will join you on the seat and we can enjoy the sunshine together. Richard Trim said he sat here when he lived in Leicester.

This would be a nice place to sit in the sun
Brian Walbey: Indeed it would Chris, Lord Trim said he sat here when he lived in Leicester.
what a nice lighting, the sun feels warm
Brian Walbey: Yes it was a lovely afternoon Chantal.
A very pleasing scene Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, our Lord Trim said he sat here when he lived in Leicester.

I've sat on one of those two benches
Brian Walbey: I'm not surprised Richard, it is a very pleasant spot.

Wouldn't I love to be sitting here in the sun.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would Mary, as indeed would I if it was a bit warmer.

No takers Brian?
Brian Walbey: They would have spoilt the picture Chad, unless they were of course some of our fine friends on SC.

No.. I believe you need odd numbers, I understand. You either need to get another bench or remove one (perhaps Chris could help with that?) . Looks a fine spot to sit and enjoy the sun, though.
Brian Walbey: Yes they always say 3 of, Alan, indeed 3 and 1 is even better apparently, me I like this arrangement anyway and don't bother too much about the rules anymore.
lovely view... love the blue skys too!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ronky. The sky is a good clue to what a lovely afternoon it was.
Looks like you picked a fine Summers day
Brian Walbey: We did indeed Martin.
Wonderful capture of this pleasant place Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. It was our first visit, and it won't be the last.
