We 'visited' Gondwanaland last weekend. I always think that words along these lines could be the opening of a novel...

This particular Gondwanaland, however, is only about an hour away from our home. It forms part of the landscape that makes up Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum. I hope my photos demonstrate the reason we try to visit each autumn before the trees lose their leaves.
