A Sunday stroll

The weather is definitely getting warmer, and we have had a lovely (mostly) sunny weekend.  We are seeing the last of the the camellias and the first of the rhododendron flowers, and enjoying the longer daylight hours.

Camellia – so beautiful

I took a pre lunch walk on Sunday through the Botanic Gardens and up to the herb garden, where I sought inspiration for what to try to go next (perhaps a curry plant, whose leaves smell just like curry powder).

And that was my Sunday morning stroll.  It was so nice to have time to enjoy the gardens instead of my usual dash through on the way to work.
