During the week I had a quick trip to Alowyn Gardens. I was there to talk about doing some workshops, but I also spent some time in the gardens and thought it would be a good post for Weekend Wanderings.
Weekend Wanderings – Alowyn Gardens
One of the things I love about going there is how different it is each time. Especially as we cycle through the seasons. We don’t seem to get a very long autumn anymore. Here we are in April and you can see the leaves of the Wisteria still haven’t changed. They are starting to, but it will be a while yet.
As I walked around you could see that the flowers were getting ready for the winter. Some of them are reaching the end of the season and you can see they are dying. While others are enjoying this time of the year. Good to see that there were flowers to photograph.
The bees were funny. I only saw a couple, but they were slow. It was so easy to take photos of them. It was surprising how slow they were moving around the flowers. They also didn’t seem that concerned about me or my camera.
All images were taken with my macro lens.

The main reason for going there the other day was to talk to them about some workshops. We are planning on doing a few over the next few months.
The first one will be on the 18th of May. It will start at 8.30 in the morning and go to 12.30. Morning tea will be included.
Here are a few photos that show things changing. What is happening where you are? Are you noticing the changes in the seasons?
