Peachick Diaries: Hillier Gardens in Autumn 10


The Peachicks are great fans of Hilliers – or the Sir Harold Hiller Gardens to give them, their full title! The place is great for little adventurers to take Parents & Grandparents alike to get them out in the fresh air and keep them out of trouble (and reward them with a nice coffee afterwards!)  Throughout the year there is lots of different activities to suit every age & budget AND there is even a holiday club for children.  We regularly visit and it is amazing how different the gardens look throughout the seasons and how even now we still manage to discover new areas to explore!  This time we ventured into the woodland at the top of the hill and found this ‘Reindeer Tree!’

Honestly the colours of some of the trees yesterday were just amazing, I was so sad I left my beloved, old Lumix at home as I could have decorated our lounge with canvases of the photos! Annoyingly the sun is shining again today but I have to wait in for my new bed otherwise I’d be there now! The reds, yellows & oranges stood out against all the green that is still around and these are just the trees in the car park!!

One advantage of living in the south is that it is still relatively warm at the moment, The Peachicks are wearing jumpers and boots more because I figured they should as its late October than because they actually need them!

The leaves underneath this tree were bright red on top and pink underneath – these were Millie’s favourite!  It’s that time of year when there is a few leaves scattered around but most are still on the trees.

And this is my favourite photo I have ever taken… it helps its of my favourite spot at Hilliers, I could literally sit here all day in the sunshine!

And of course a visit to Hillier’s would be complete without visiting the piggies! They are so cute and spent ages by the fence snorting and squealing at the gathered visitors!20161025_121449-2

 

The Peachicks favourite tree of all… Now you see them…

Can you guess which tree The Ginger Peachick wanted to run too?!

And in case you were in any doubt as to how warm it currently is down here in the Tropical South… the gardens are still full of bees and dragon flies!
