Cambridge Botanical Gardens

Ok its normally a later visit in tbe summer that I come here, for the flutterbies and the dragonflies. As a change I thought I would make a spring visit instead.

If you needed more evidence that spring is with us then you need look no further the blossom is stunning on the tress, magnificent whites, pinks and purples.

The daffs are out too in vast numbers, in the borders and through out. It was odd though not to see more in bloom for me, I guess as I am used to being a summer visitor, when the roses are in bloom too

The scented garden was surprisingly scented too. Lots of herbs just starting to awake too

Not much wildlife though it has to be said. However was fairly busy with lots of screaming little dears chasing around on easter egg hunts (I looked but didnt find any).
Lots of birdsong and saw quite a few teaspoons, oh and a very speedy ladybug!!
So all in all am I disappointed I went in Spring? Erm yes and no really. The weather was fairly cloudy and it did rain. Not many insects about either. However the spring flowers were beautiful...



I will of course have to go back again....

Great photos, your camera takes some beautiful clear shots. Glad you had a nice day, shame it rained though, it wasn't that great here either, overcast all day, but quite pleasant.
