Autumn at Bodenham Arboretum, Wolverley , Worcestershire. 01/11/2017

A few images taken on my recent walk around part of the arboretum. A delightful walk whatever the weather.








The bark on this tree fascinates me, it looks as though a ribbon has been tightly bound around it.                            Prunus Serrula- Ornamental Cherry.

                              
                                     Dogwoods are a treat to see in Autumn.





Meet Elvis. He is one of two sheepdogs that enjoy bringing a cone or piece of wood for you to throw or kick for them to chase and return to you in readiness for another chase!
                               


The donkeys will soon be in a stable and playing their part in one of the Nativity scenes around the farm.

  1. What a great place to visit, you've certainly got some excellent photos. As for Elvis - "he ain't nothin' but a hound dog!".

  4. I am still seeing plenty of autumnal colours, I expect a few more sharp frosts and it will be all over for another year!

    Elvis has a new playmate, 9 week old Shirley! I will take a photo of her if she ever keeps still.lol
