The Cambridge University Botanic Gardens welcome everyone (for a very reasonable entrance fee) with a combination of a beautiful english garden, a little (not too hardcore) education, and a wealth of fascinating trees. Highly recommended.
Here are a few favourites from a recent visit.
A little education…
…and for the younger generation.
and for the more nerdy?
Plus of course, beautiful vistas
city centre tranquillity
and wonderful specimen trees
More to follow another day…

Here below is my favourite image from the first 12 months (ironically, not a picture of a tree) to sustain me – and I hope entertain you – until I can return to a green place in a few weeks from now.

Wood in the service of mankind (and bees), 4 – Slovenian Beehives
Folk themes – painted panels
At Slovenia’s magnificent arboretum at Volcji Potok
So many folklore questions unanswered…
