    Hi all,

    Today we wanted to go to Westonbirt arboretum, but when we arrived there we were told that a booking is required... Since we have a membership to the Friends of Batsford (which allow free entry to Westonbirt and Batsford) and that the other arboretum doesn't require booking, we went there instead.

    Colors are starting to change, and it's starting to look quite nice. I think more showy colors from next week-end onwards. Shame it was raining quite a bit

    Here are some of the photos I took today. I think they've got a wider selection of cultivars than at Westonbirt

    We'll try to go to Westonbirt soon

    This thread is the Batsford pendant to the really nice Westonbirt's thread from @dicky5ash (you were lucky to have a nice weather!)
