Here are some snaps from yesterday
You picked a perfect day R. Wonderful pics, almost like being there.
Nice pics @dicky5ash ! and great weather! You must have had a great day
Was the National Japanese Maple Collection area fully re-opened now? A few weeks ago, when we went, all that section was closed off as they were removing diseased ash trees.
Few more more magnificent place as per!
Second photo is Mirt..the last was labelled as schichihenge..but looks more like Olsens Frosted Strawberry with a peaches and cream shape leaf!!!?
All open..I wasnt aware of an area called National Japanese Maple Collection and I’ve been there half a dozen times which side is that? The side where they had removed diseased ash trees didn’t look much different to what I saw in November..maybe there’s a whole section I’m not aware of lol
Do you mean the left hand side over the tree walk ?
The section is Silk wood (the 'newer section' of the arboretum). I've circled the zone in the map. That's where there are the widest varieties of JM in Westonbirt (the old part mostly contains the 'Amoenum' type).
I think the Koto no ito in your photos is from the Silk wood area (last autumn it looked awesome in all its orange glory!)
Think that's Silk Wood R. The whole of Westonbirt has the national collection.
I didn’t think I’d missed anything..Generally spend about 5-7 hours there!! There is a section on the top left I haven’t explored
Just so much to enjoy and take in. I can see why locals are members and can visit every day. Just a gorgeous place, as your photos perfectly show R.
