Hello Harlow Carr

February can feel gloomy, but it’s surprising how a visit to RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate can lift the spirits, by taking a few photos of the oh so early spring bulbs and an ideal place to enjoy being a Granny still in training for pram pushing.

So this February Sunday afternoon was perfect to practice my new skill along previously undiscovered paths, some quite hilly and then freewheel down to Bettys outdoor café to refuel with a hot chocolate.

Then a stroll up the gentle slope past rhubarb to the surprisingly large book and gift shop.

This is the kind of place to take your time, to wander…to take in your surroundings.

Harlow Carr is a must-see if you are ever in the Harrogate vicinity.  There is an entrance fee but I’m glad I took the annual RHS membership. I can take a family member, and Grandson as often as I want. That’s the way to go!

I look forward to returning in the next few weeks and photograph the seasonal changing of the plants and trees.
