Botanic Gardens revisited

Today we paid a return visit to the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens.  Early spring found most beds still waking up. 

The daffodils and hellebore had gone over in places so were looking faded and tired.  The yellow beds in front of the glasshouses were looking good though and smelt lovely with lots of creamy hyacinths

The Winter Garden was still in full colour and saved the visit. 

Plenty of blossom on show - magnolias, cherry and the like

I think another visit in a month to six weeks will be in order.  For colour though I think our first visit wins hands down for now

We had planned a visit to the Fitzwilliam Museum as we were over that side of Cambridge, but alas they don't open on a Monday.  All was not lost though as we paid a visit to Wimpole Hall on the way home.  It was the first time we had been in the Hall, I didn't take any photos sorry.  As this is on our doorstep so to speak we will go again for sure.
