Minnowburn Walk


I motored over to Minnowburn, the National Trust's wonderful property near Belfast, this afternoon.

The little car-park was full and the mobile diner van was parked, as usual, at one corner.


One particular shrub was conspicuous by the boldness of its colour.

Alas, I'm a reluctant gardener and didn't recognize it at all.

Do any readers know of it?


AT the Rose Garden there is a relatively new path which skirts one side. It has sturdy, traditional fencing.


Flamboyant bird-boxes proliferate the woods beside the car-park.
