Wordless Wednesday – ‘Ah’ moments at Anglesey Abbey

wwviburnum

Take a deep breath of sweet, sweet viburnum

wwcherry

A stunning view of burnished cherry bark and fiery cornus, but I can’t help thinking of Pippi Longstocking

wwwitch

I love the iteration between the background euonymus and lichen on the witch hazels

wwwillow

A glorious example of pollarded Salix alba var. vitellina

Wintersweet, glowing and perfuming the air.

This landscape of bright willows and dogwoods has a strange cactus-like feel to it that I love

aa2

The birch grove annex (about 5yrs old now) is beginning to show its colours (OK white)

wwpoplar

Duckweed on the dark waters make the poplar reflections seem to be part of a night sky

Snowdrops – of course, these are what we all come for at this time of year after all

    • Glad you enjoyed it! It is a tremendously popular destination at this time of year, so it is best to visit early in the day to get unobstructed views (even if the shadows are more pronounced).
