I have fond memories of this place from my childhood. My late Mother, being a keen gardener, would visit these gardens and simply admire the variety of plants, trees and flowers. This time round, there have been many improvements and additions to the gardens. I love the fact that this garden is still fairly small in comparison to its bigger brother, Kew Gardens.
The abundance of light, form, texture and colour in this place is a great advantage to completely absorb the surroundings and loose yourself in photography. I certainly did :)
