A misty morning at Westonbirt

Weeping beeches and the gatehouse of Westonbirt School
 A flying visit to the UK by my friend Jimi Blake of Hunting Brook Gardens in Ireland provided an excuse for a pleasant visit to the National Arboretum at Westonbirt this morning, enabling us to catch up as we walked round this great collection of trees. The famous spectacle of the autumn colours of the maples was long gone, but this meant that there was no distraction from the beauty of the trees in the mist, or the fine details of other plants.
