Lockdown of the azaleas

Isabella Plantation, the beautiful garden in the middle of Richmond Park, is currently closed to the public due to the Coronavirus and social distancing measures.

I walked around the Plantation perimeter today. Outside, of course. There were very few other people there. It was a hot afternoon and it is quite a distance from any of the park gates. Peering through the fences, I caught glimpses of carpets of bluebells and banks of proudly blooming azaleas. No-one around to appreciate them, these plants were still merrily ‘doing it for themselves’.

And, briefly and distantly, for me.
