The parks


Regular readers of this blog will know what I love going for walks in the Jephson and Mill Gardens. Yesterday, was the first day I was able to go back, given how compromised my mobility has been since my operation. There were not many people about, and everyone kept a safe distance of 2m, so it all good.




We walked past the bridge and into the Mill Gardens.


 

The river on our left.





It was a glorious, sunny day and the trees looked magnificent.




Nice reflections in the water.




We reached the end of the path and the bridge was facing us on the left.




View from the bridge.




We entered Jephson Gardens and took the path that leads to the pond and the fountains.







The blossom is out




Looking across the river onto the Mill Gardens. The straw on the island is placed there for the swans to nest.




Nice splash of colour




We entered the sensory garden




Bright red border




The pond with the water features on our left




and the formal flower borders on our right




looking closer




We circled the pond




said hello to two mallards




who immediately jumped into the water




Retraced our steps, over the bridge




view of the Parish Church on our right




and views of Jephson Gardens and Mill Gardens on our right. It was wonderful.
