This weekend we finally made a trip to The Forestry Commission National Arboretum at Westonbirt, to see the famed autumnal spectacle of colour. And it didn’t disappoint.
The 16,000 trees, 3,000 different specimens, come from Britain, China, North America, Japan, Chili and other temperate climates.
Attracting over 350,000 visits per year the arboretum is known worldwide for its spectacular autumn clour and the spring rhododendron, azaelea and magnolia displays.
Our visit coincided with some sunshine and the Acers, Maples and Beech trees displaying their colour at thier peak.
A wonderful visit at this time of year, and highly recommended.
