My walk this week looks and listens to some botanical beauty in Swansea’s Singleton Park. It is late Spring and new arrangements have been made in the formal garden and the colours abound in the less formal areas.
The hot-house is exotic with the blooming of enormous bright flowers and the sound of running water accompanies the humidity in one section while fading away in the cactus house. The twisting paths both inside and out give a sense of exploration and discovery as you round a corner or enter a “tunnel” and find another colourful viewpoint or vista.

Sitting in the peacefulness of the arranged beds, listening to the birds and the gentle hoeing of the gardeners, or wandering around those twisting paths on a beautiful sunny Spring day, there is a sense of separation from the hubbub of the world.
