To the nursery ...

Sunday (Oct 29) was a bit cooler than of late when we went off for a walk
... through Dorney Park and the lakes where the 2012 Olympic Rowing took place

It's also a lovely open space with wooded areas.  Here some of the trees are wearing self-irrigation bags

I've looked everywhere for information about these two carved pillars, the nearest one is inscribed INDIGINAE Latin for indigenous meaning 'of this place' or native.

A pastoral scene as we leave the lake and walk towards Dorney Court. Our destination today was the nursery garden and cafe for some winter pansies.  A couple of weeks ago I'd removed all the petunias from my pots and planted spring bulbs but needed something for colour over winter.
I decided on trailing pansies called Berries and Cream and spent a very pleasant hour or so planting them when we returned from our walk.  I just hope that they survive the forecasted low temperatures tomorrow morning with the possibility of a ground frost.
