Cleveland November Part One

In Cleveland, Ohio for a couple of days,  we stayed opposite the Botanical Gardens. The buildings looked rather jagged and angular

Kew Gardens it definitely wasn't

And November isn't the best time to visit Botanical Gardens but the sun was shining and I thought I'd give it a try. And was I pleasantly surprised!

They'd done wonders with just a few urban acres, transformed into an autumnal woodland.

It was peaceful, wandering around, almost alone, through the autumn leaves, with flashes of red among the browns and yellows. 

Some intrepid roses

braving the approach of winter

This one had a very British name

I wonder if the average Clevelander knows who Darcey Bussell is?

And here was a neat and tidy herb garden.

And here, at the end of the path, were those archways (see below) a folly perhaps but a very engaging one.

More to follow...

The blog is on its travels again. see you next week!
