Beautiful Blossom

Just a little update on what I've been up to recently. We had a walk around the Arboretum at Jodrell Bank on Saturday - I have visited it several times before, but this is the first time during springtime, and the trees were all in blossom: everything from deepest pink to foaming white flowers, absolutely gorgeous. A new visitor centre is planned at Jodrell, so it will be very interesting to see how the site develops.
I am not getting much time for 'fun' reading at the moment as I am deep in the research for Stolen Childhoods, but at bedtime I am wading through Ian Kelly's 'Beau Brummell', and if I get a moment will post a review later.
TV-wise, I am greatly enjoying BBC2's Story of Science - a well researched and well presented programme, and mercifully with no 'dumbing down'.

Ian Kelly's book is a very good read;I do hope you enjoy it, Sue. And I am too so enjoying the Story of Science.Im a frustrated scientist. Loved all the sciences at school but couldn't do the maths!

Hi Julie, will let you know how I get on with BBrummell! The Science series is very well done, and to date has included a fair bit on my favourite time periods.
