So, weather and lack of trains aside (and yes, I got wet) off I went.
I am really pleased with today's pictures and there could well be more than normal.....
sit back with a cuppa and enjoy.
so, onto closeups then with the new telephoto macro lens (not used to a telephoto (single focal length) lens, kept trying to zoom in!!
and euphorbia centres... look at the drips of rain on the edge!
(this lens makes me happy!)
close up of one of the led sensors in the Hive...
part of the Hive... looks like a Dalek head!!
sadly some of the activities for the Easter event have had to be moved to one of the buildings - there was so much rain over the last few days the tents have been flooded out
shame, they look so pretty
magnolia in front of the slope of daffodils behind..
I headed to the cafe for coffee and cake (raspberry and pistachio - gorgeous) - I didn't linger as it was crowded -
all sopping wet!
I went into the gallery to see the new exhibition that's taken the place of Life in Death... no photos allowed...
walked past the treetop walkway, didn't go up today, but headed for the lake....
walking along the side of the lake, the path was very muddy and slippery
but there were some reflections to be had
so in I popped...
it looks so empty in there as all the perimeter planting has been cut back
thanks for looking and enjoying my new lens! (hopefully)
