An afternoon at Westonbirt Arboretum

I’m sorry for being so quiet. I haven’t been up to much and as a result haven’t had much to write about. However, last week was absolutely lovely. It was my birthday, so I took the day off and also took a couple of days off to go to a gig in Bristol (British Sea Power, for the 4th time!). Funnily enough, a bookmark I bought there was a nice link to my weekend plans – a trip to Westonbirt Arboretum with friends. We couldn’t have picked a better day to go. It was stunning, and I would definitely recommend a visit if you’re in the area. Personally, I think arboretums are nice year round, but I was pleased we got to see some blossom as it’s one of my favorite things.

My favorite merch from the British Sea Power gig.
The elevated walkway. It was so lovely!

The crow’s nest was quite cool. I like heights, but even I got a bit freaked out as it wobbled slightly!

Magnolia tree.
Japanese cherry.
Japanese maples.
European larch.
A cute little seat in the middle of the arboretum.
Such lovely blossom!

Have you ever been to an arboretum? I hadn’t, but left wishing I lived close enough to merit a membership!
