A flash of colour on a grey day -Westonbirt Arboretum

We joined the Arboretum on a gorgeous autumnal day this year, lured in by the beauty of the trees. Feeling very anxious about Christmas day today, a Christmas Eve walk was in order. We were late in getting out and it was drizzling. Despite some of the trees having lost their leaves there was still much to see, interesting textures, shapes, blooms coming in to flower. It was peaceful and the smell of the woods enveloped the difficult emotions and made me feel better. There is just something about woods which just takes it all away for a moment. The day didn’t seem so grey after all. If you are struggling this Christmas try and get some time outdoors if you are able to and try to take some comfort in the detail of what’s around you. I’d love to see your adventures.
