Stockwood Discovery Centre – Spring in the Greenhouse

Since there was blossom on my fruit trees, I thought I’d take a quick trip to the Stockwood Discovery Centre, as I had also not visited for a while and wanted a word with the Gardeners there. The sun which had greeted me in the early morning had retired before I set off, but as I entered, it re-appeared. As I made my way through in search of the gardeners I had hoped to meet, the beds were all bare, so I began to think I might be out of luck for any photos, so I did not even unpack a camera at this stage.

I enquired of a staff member whether the particular gardener, Jan was in and learned that she was, but neither he nor another gardener knew of her whereabouts, so I thanked them and headed for the greenhouse, where I met up with Bridey, who told me Jan would soon be returning. Now I did get out the camera and started taking a few shots of the Bird of Paradise flower and soon Jan reappeared and I briefly showed her the details of the house I was hoping to buy and move into.

I managed to find a few specimens that caught my eye and for a change it was a pleasant and temperate climate in there. As I took shots I learned about some of the plans for the new season, in particular a wide variety of sunflowers are due, which particularly pleased me as I always find them a happy flower.

Since it was coming to the end of their day, I was bid farewell and asked to lock up when I finished which was not too long after, and after a cull, the gallery of images from the jaunt was forty pictures in the Gallery. As I left the sky blackened, but the sun remained, providing nice light for some blowing grasses against the sky.
