Right now, cold drizzle is falling and autumn is moving towards winter, but it will be Spring again, and bright sunny days will come, with a glorious burst of colour.

Exbury Gardens, on the banks of the Beaulieu River, has acid soils perfect for Azaleas and Rhododendrons. A century and a half of dedicated collection and cultivation has created colours almost too strong and pure to seem real, and framed perfect views.

These images were all taken in April and May (2017 and 2018) at Exbury Gardens using my Canon M50 Camera and EFM lenses.
