This was always going to be the trickiest month to photograph at the Cambridge University Botanic Garden. Of course, one hopes for a covering of snow or an all-day frost but that's not seeming likely at the moment. I also had the back-up option of cheating by confining myself to the Glasshouse Range. In the end that didn't prove necessary and I had a pleasant afternoon wandering around outside, though rather curtailed by the early sunset.
Last vestiges of Autumn:
A final Hurrah!
…..because I've managed to complete a whole year of monthly posts from the Botanic Gardens. I shall certainly renew my membership for 2019 though I haven't decided whether to continue with monthly posts or perhaps do something a little different.
Beautiful shots! That first one in particular appeals to me.ReplyDelete
When I look at your photographs I know that you are a photographer and I am just someone who wishes to record the moment! Great series of images here, and like William, I am especially drawn to the first one. There is something very primal about it.ReplyDelete
These are so wonderful...I've enjoyed all your Botanic Garden strolls. Today's grouping seems to give me a wonderful desert of textures, rather than colors. Thank you so much.ReplyDelete
finding the beauty in all seasons.ReplyDelete
Don't stop posting from the botanical gardens the place looks wonderful. Beatuty can be found even on a dreary day in winter.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comment on my Church Explorer blog, it's a blog I enjoy looking on the OS maps for churches to visit and writing about, probably more that the other blogs I write.
So many colors, hues, and textures! Do you have snow? Son-in-law Richard went to Cambridge (corpus christi) where he stole away my American daughter Mary while she was on a quarterly study from San Diego. Wedding in Cambridge was beautiful.ReplyDelete
We'll visit there again.
For me each season has its charmes. Even Winter without snow, at least so far.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos John.
There's so much beauty that we miss but you uncover it and bring it to our eyes to view. Love your photos, John.ReplyDelete
Wonderful, and still so much colour to see, as well as all those beautiful shapes and textures. I think you made the most of your membership this year and we got the benefit too.ReplyDelete
John you are the best and most competent person I know at finding beauty in a garden whatever time of year it is. Wonderful photographs.ReplyDelete
Oh, wow, fine shots. I like/love each one for a different reason!ReplyDelete
These are amazingly gorgeous photos! It just proves that we should look around a bit to find beauty.ReplyDelete
Lovely fall colors and I really, really like your photo No. 5!ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures, John. I hope you will continue...ReplyDelete
It's a lovely variety of textures and colors. That first photo looks like a kaleidoscope!ReplyDelete
I love the first shot it is amazing but then I also love all the colors and textures and details in the other photos also, it is like a little art gallery of wonder.ReplyDelete
Lovely shots. And that last one - WOW!ReplyDelete
I have just been away for a few days and returned to find these lovely shots. You don't appear to have had any problems photographing the gardens in December at Cambridge University Botanical Gardens as they are all stunning.ReplyDelete
You still have autumn colour! We are white these days!ReplyDelete
There is still so much colour, so much to see! What a fantastic collection of photos again, it was definitely worth a monthly visit!ReplyDelete
