Last Sunday we went to Westonbirt Arboretum for the first time, we took Daddy P’s sister and her husband with us and it would appear that the rest of England decided to join us for the day. I’m quite excited that so many people appear to love trees, nature and autumnal colours. Honestly, it was heaving at the entrance all day, but once you’d got past the payment queues and fuelled up in the cafe, there was plenty of room for everyone. I’ll be sharing a post next weekend on our day, but this photo stood apart from the amazing colours of the trees. Flowers also turning, a hydrangea bloom half vibrant in hues of blue, half brown and dying.
I love the mix of colours, it almost looked like a bouquet – my kind of colours aren’t they!

Wow, there really is a lot of colour in that!
Every year I say we should go to Westonbirt and every year we don’t! The last time we went, my 14 year son was four months old!
It was breathtaking there. We had a wonderful day
The colours are gorgeous. You’re right about it looking like a stunning bouquet.
Beautiful colours. I’ve never really been a hydrangea fan, but the colours can be gorgeous.
I love them personally, you can get so much variation
Hydrangea are my most favourite flowers, and these are simply gorgeous, and because of the colour change, I have never seen this colour before. They are usually pastel colours. Beautiful!
That’s what grabbed me, totally different to the colours I would expect
Ours have these same purple and blue tones now, I’m hoping they last another month, it is the last signs of summer.
Beautiful aren’t they, fingers crossed
What amazing colours, it’s looks like colourful flowers
Thank you for linking up
I love the contrast between the colour and the autumnal brown!
I Love Hydrangeas, really pretty.
Hope you had a lovely time 🙂
Wonderful aren’t they. We had a great time thanks
Stunning colours and such a great capture. Xx
I love how hydrangeas turn in autumn, they are such long lasting flowers that give and give.
They really are, I love them too
I love them too
What gorgeous flowers! They are so pretty! I do love the colours….
Beautiful. I adore hydrangeas, I take lots of photos of ours. Love the way they change over the year, but remain beautiful even when fading. Our first frost hasn’t been too kind to ours though 🙁 Lovely photo x
What an absolutely stunning picture. Love it!
They look like a ball of butterflies all bunch up together. So lovely! 🙂
Yes I can see that too
A perfect photo
