The sunshine returned on Tuesday after a cooler period, so we decided to head off to Temple Newsam to see the rhododendrons. It's the perfect time of year to visit as the gardens, filled with so much colour, are a delight to see. Previous posts I've written about the rhododendrons at Temple Newsam are Temple Newsam Rhododendron Walk and Temple Newsam Rhododendrons. I have to say that we won't be heading back to Temple Newsam in a hurry though, it was packed, and there wasn't a lot of social distancing happening. Different families were out together and many people didn't even try to step to the side as people passed by them. It's so different to the experience we've had at Lotherton since the lockdown has begun to ease, it's so much quieter there and every single person we've come into contact with has moved out of the way, as we've done too, as we've passed by.
This is the start of the Rhododendron Walk. The path snakes its way through the parkland with these beautiful shrubs grown as a hedge all the way along.
I shall let the flowers and colour do the talking for me today.
I'm pleased I got to see the rhododendrons at Temple Newsam this year, it's just a shame that people aren't sticking to the social distancing rules.
