Back to the Park

...


In Spring I posted photos of the park in Forres. Last month we went back to see how it looked in Summer. To save everyone having to click back and forth I'm putting both the old Spring and new Summer photos here for comparison. :-)

Forres is a finalist in the Town Section of Britain ib Bloom. Last year they won Silver Gilt (2nd), but this year they are after gold! Here's hoping they get it, because they certainly deserve it for love, effort and dedication.

This first photo below is a case in point - this is part of the garden done by volunteer children from the Forres area.

Back to Spring - the beaver in the "water"...

...and the same Beaver in Summer.

The butterfly in Spring...

...and in Summer.
Teddy bear with box in Spring...
...and in Summer.

Finally, a view across the sunken gardens and ponds towards Forres Town centre. Unfortunately the fountains weren't on, as they were fixing the pumps that day.
