Skeletons in the ....

....Garden? We popped back to the Museum garden on Saturday - I wanted to show Ben and thankfully he was just as taken with it as I was! Hurrah! |We had a good old wander around, then went into the museum and had a good old wander about in there too - learned some new stuff about our local area too - quite fascinating finding out about how the town has grown and changed. While we were browsing around the gardens I found this leaf skeleton - how fascinating is that? Just the veins of the leaf structure still there and everything else gone....it feels like a real sign of winter somehow. It seems winter has finally arrived too - it's bitterly cold outside and was even trying to snow when I was out earlier. Hopefully we won't get as much snow and cold weather as we did last year!
