April is such a magical time of year! It’s quite simply awe inspiring to see the landscape being painted by mother nature in every beautiful shade of green, as more leaves unfurl and the view becomes ever greener each day. I love to be outside, surrounded by the birds singing and bees buzzing. On warm days you may see butterflies flying: look out for the green toned Brimstone butterfly this month.
Winkworth Arboretum, Hascombe Road, Godalming, Surrey GU8 4AD. National Trust.
Winkworth Arboretum is a beautiful place to visit. The arboretum is set into the hillside; it’s a steep, but tranquil setting which features a lake and wetland area. There are carpets of bluebells throughout the arboretum, as well as Azaleas, Magnolias and Rhododendrons among the collections of trees and plants.
