York Museum Gardens by Night or Day

We are due to visit York in December to walk around the museum gardens at night with our grandchildren so we had a little recce. We had had the coldest night of the year and I needed to scrape the ice off the car. Most of our plants have somehow escaped the ravages thankfully but this post is about the lovely autumnal colour in the museum gardens. Hydrangeas are sensational at this time of the year so I snapped one I liked against a brick wall.



 Of course, we were able to see the preparations for the night spectacular. As I mentioned to Jan, it's much better to see the gardens in daylight when it's free. Maybe the kids will be happy with the photos.


And I'll throw in the calf we saw in the University grounds.

  1. It's beautiful! We've nothing like that here, of course; I have all of three plants with leaves that turn with the cold weather, and they're not doing it yet. I love that shot of the hydrangea against the Araucaria! Also the calf. :-) Hope you and the grandchildren have a wonderful time!
