Thanks to Sally’s hard work and organisation, we met at the Botanical Gardens at 7.30 yesterday evening for a fascinating walk and talk from Tom – our favourite climbing arborist (which makes him sound a bit like a clematis!)

It was a beautiful evening for a walk and Tom shared a small part of his wealth of knowledge of trees and Bath and North East Somerset parks.

Naturally we had to stop to admire the Bath WI garden!

Added entertainment from an ascending balloon.

On with the tour…

We all peered inside this hollow tree to see a root growing through the centre!

There was just time to pop in to The Dell before it got dark.

Then back to Kitty’s for refreshments! Thank you Kitty!

…and being the WI, of course there were scones (thanks to Sally).

If you couldn’t make it to yesterday’s tour, we are working on Tom to give us another tour in the Autumn!
