Johnston Gardens – an Autumn walk

A few days ago I took the opportunity of a a lovely sunny morning to walk to some  beautiful gardens nearby.

These were actually in our neighbours garden on the way out.

Lovely feathery leaves

Beautiful red leaves

and deep red ones

. . .look better with a few rain drops

Looking across the water. .

The colour under this tree was surreal

Looking closer.

I wish I had some green paint

Soft moss covered rocks

I loved these fir cones

    • You really should visit these gardens. They are not very large, but there is a beautiful lake in the middle with ducks. At the moment there is a Mandarin duck who is not being very friendly to the locals. This best times to visit are now or for the rhododendrons and azaleas in the spring.

    • I hope it was a red squirrel too. We have a bigger park nearby that definitely has red squirrels, but we have a grey one in our garden. A few years ago they had a cull of the grey squirrels in order to protect our red community. I know that grey squirrels are not good for the red ones, but I had enjoyed seeing them in our garden, so was a bit sad about it.
