Slow down and take in the view…Richmond Park

I know we are cyclists not gardeners but at this time of year (April-May) there is an opportunity to see the flowering shrub display at the ISABELLA plantation in Richmond Park (Broomfield Hill car park). The azaleas and rhododendrons are in full bloom in this glorious weather but won’t be for long.

The display has been magnificent for 4 or more weeks when I visited last week – won’t last forever….

(Message from editor: Jon makes a good point that sometimes we need to slow down and enjoy the views we might whizz past and miss….we ride in some of the most beautiful countryside)
