Batsford Arboretum and lunch at Stanton

 

Today we drove to the Batsford Arboretum, we met our friends Tony and June at the cafe. The leaves on the trees were changing colour beautifully.

Here are some of my favourite pictures:

 

We then moved on to the beautiful Cotswold village of Stanton, having lunch at the pub, the mount inn.

Absolutely brilliant October day.

 

Corfu 2018 Flora & Fauna

Corfu has an abundance of birds and wildlife, the island is rich in trees, plants, flowers and natural beauty, much of which seems to be overlooked by most of the tourists. As a teenager, I loved reading the book, My family and other animals, by Gerald Durrell, his love and passion for the creatures and people of Corfu has had an enduring effect on me.

Here are some of the best pictures, some of the flowers were cultivated in pots.
