I often think that November is a dreary dull month and often devoid of colour. However after my unscheduled spending spree, I thought I better head off for the Botanical Gardens where there was less chance of my wallet taking a further battering.
I was met with a riot of very welcome colour.
I love the Botanical Gardens at any time of year. They have had less money spent on them this year because of cut backs, but it is still a beautiful space in the city.
I was hardy and took my lunch " Al Fresco". The Curators House Cafe in the garden is a lovely place to eat.
I shall revisit this post the next time I think November is drab.
