Harlow Carr in November

 
Just had time for a whistle stop walk around the gardens to blow away the cobwebs.  It gets dark so early at this time of year. Very few notable plants and shrubs apart from some early hellebores, dogwoods and viburnum blossom.
However, there was seasonal decoration
 






 Plenty of interest and colour in the Alpine House

Beautiful bark on the Winter Walk

Colour by the pond

Attractive pot planting for this season

.... and garden features
 






 On balance, a pleasant couple of hours.
