Spring bloom in the Wimpole gardens

Well I keep walking through the gardens at Wimpole in the early morning and sometimes in the evening now the days are getting longer and thought I should share the delights of spring. May well do other photo galleries throughout the year to open up people’s eyes!!!!!!!!! Might take a few seconds for the full sharp photos to download.


One thing I have noticed over the years is how people seem to miss what is right in front of their noses, the absolute beauty that exists on your doorstep yet the very thing they can’t see and  only see the things far far away in another world. I too had to travel because I could not see but then had a friend from New Zealand Philip Crutchley who worked in the Wimpole gardens many years ago who opened my eyes to the beauty that lavished the British countryside.

A life time of taking photos and I’m only just realising how to see!

About Sadeik

You may ask why "Sadeik" well it means friend in arabic. Worked in Jordan a lot doing tree surgery you see. I have worked in forestry since I left school with a two years in Telecom. Went back to forestry and tree surgery as it may not have paid as much but was far more interesting and dangerous. Spent a lot of years mountaineering, caving and canoeing too. At 29 I went to Bangor University to study Forestry and soil science then did an MSc in Water engineering all very interesting. By a quirk of fate in 1995 ended up helping sort out the woodland and park at Wimpole, funny thing was then I only intended to stay six months or so, but 18 years later I'm still here learning all the time. That's the best bit, if I wasn't able to learn something new every year I would not have stayed and as you get older you realise that the grass is not so green in the next field after all. In fact my patch is getting greener while much of the rest is getting browner.
