Weekly photo challenge: summer (2)
It’s easy to take beauty for granted. Especially when it is on your doorstep.
I decided to take the long route home and climbed up through the Alameda Gardens to see what had changed since the last time I visited.
Given that it is already starting to get hot and dry, I was surprised how many flowers were in bloom (post to come on roughseas) – edit – given the ‘today’ theme, I’ll post them on here.
But here was an oasis of greenery, and a water spray. Summer doesn’t arrive until later this month, but in the gardens summer is clearly here, with more than one permanent spray on in the middle of the day.
Every time I visit (which isn’t often enough), I never fail to appreciate how lovely it is to have these beautiful gardens a few minutes walk from my home.
An average UK park is bigger. Harlow Carr Gardens are probably the size of Gibraltar.
Like everything in Gib, we may not have quantity but we do have quality.
Today I met a jogger, a contemplator, a family, and the ever industrious gardeners who look after this beautiful space.
Summer in the Alameda Gardens. It was 27 degrees apparently, the cable car has a weather thing and I noticed it on the way home.
