Botanical Gardens Spring Walk (and big freeze)

Went for a great spring walk with the friends of the botanical gardens, most in their 60s and 70s. As usual, the walk was led by Max, a very nice and knowledgeable old guy (who hates roses!).

Max showed us lots of Magnolias, cherries, and all manner of nice trees. It really is a nice garden.

During the walk though, the wind changed to a southery and the temperature plumetted and we once again needed to seek shelter from the cold!

The plumetting temperature was particularly odd given how hot it was at the start of the day - we went out wearing sun hats and sun cream!
