16 November: Botanic Garden

Happy Birthday, Dear Son!

A trip to the Botanic garden in Durham, in brilliant sunshine. An early lunch in the cafe - new sofas since our last visit - then a wander round. We passed a man with a camera on a tripod, photographing a hat and coat artfully arranged on a bench. He could have been anywhere.

I took a few snaps - white birches along the stream -

Underfoot, some seeds, shoots and leaves -

Lichens on a rope by the path -

Oh look ! There are some rare breed sheep grazing in the arboretum -

Manx Loghtans and Hebrideans. This Manx Loghtan ewe let me take a closer view -
