Caversham Park Gardens in Spring


Thanks for calling in.

We have visited Reading many times and its neighbour Caversham to see Caversham Court Gardens and I thought I should pop back to see it in the Spring.

The specimen trees were just awakening, the old mulberry tree that had collapsed last time I was there, had been given its own permanent fence and there were lots of tulips around whilst the borders were showing more green shoots.

The magnificent magnolia was incredibly colourful yet somehow I have managed to photograph it in monochrome.  How did I do that? Why, also?

There must have been loads of daffodils but only a few remained.

This statue on the gate looks a little thirsty!

Could you have squashed another primula into this bed!

Heading back to the station along the river was delightful.

A goods train was zipping along the tracks.

 See you soon.


  1. What a lovely walk. It looks as if whoever planted the primulas was determined to pack in as many as possible, it does look very and cheerful though:)

  2. The primulas certainly lift your spirits they are such a pretty sight.

  3. I hope some day to make a trip to Europe! So beautiful!
