Hallowe'en Tree Trail at Belsay

Take the children along to collect leaves, cones and lots of knowledge about some fascinating trees.
Something smells like sugar




It's got HUGE leaves but is it a tree?



                                                                   What animal do you see?
                                                                                     and where is he hiding?

There is also an exhibition in the Hall with clay Medusa heads from pupils of Belsay school as well as some by ancient Greeks :)
                                              What's this got to do with training shoes?

Cherry Blossom Time at Alnwick: 27th April 2018

I don't know how often it occurs that the cherry blossom in the largest Sakura grove outside of Japan coincides with a late flowering of daffodils. I do know, when it happens the sight is spectacular -- and I can show you. 
And of course the fountains at Alnwick are always spectacular.
