Dazzling autumn colours

The mild weather this year created the most beautiful colours I’d seen for a long time. It gave me the perfect opportunity to do the Bournemouth Gardens walk (which I’m ashamed to say I hadn’t done yet, even though I’ve lived here for almost 10 years!) The path starts at the seafront and meanders alongside 1.5 miles of shrubs and trees from around the world, planted to provide interest throughout the year. I started at the other end, Coy Pond, and ended the walk in town with a lovely hot cuppa.
