Weekend Wanderings: Alfred Nicholas Memorial Garden
Last weekend I showed you some images that were taken when I went to the Piggery Café a couple of weeks ago, however on the same day we went for a walk through the Alfred Nicholas Memorial Gardens which are right next door. They are the gardens that were part of the Burnham Beeches Mansion which is in the same grounds. They are very extensive and while I went into them, we didn’t spend a lot of time there, I would like to go back and explore it more one day.
There are flowers everywhere. I used the Nikon 28-300mm to take these images, but if I went again I would be sure to pack my macro lens.
There are ponds up near the top.
The gardens are on the side of a hill and as you wander you go further and further down.
At the bottom you will find a small lake with some great wooden arch bridges and a funny boathouse. It was autumn when we went and the trees were beginning to change. They made the lake very beautiful.
They are beautiful gardens and I have a friend that I know will especially want to go there and wander around with me. She loves photographing flowers and we often visit gardens together.
Here are some more images for you. I hope you enjoy them. Winter seems to have finally arrived in my part of the world and it has been cold and wet. Hopefully when I travel to Tasmania next week the weather won’t be wet.
