Adjacent to our Birmingham Botanical Gardens you'll find the picturesque Japanese Gardens. I ventured over last Sunday after my walk, on a cold, dreary day. Not the best conditions for a photo shoot, but I am a desperate woman ! I walked to the very edge of the gardens and wandered into this amazing bamboo forest. If my hands hadn't been numb, I would have thought I had been transported to a tropical isle! It was a tad too dark for photographs , but I hope you get the feeling.
