A little while ago I had noticed that the old Library building had been boarded up and when I passed the park in the car the other day I noticed that the little kiosk had been boarded up as well. I really like the bright purply pink against the new green spring growth.
Viewing from a different angle

From the Kiosk towards the old Library.
There are several windows in the boards around the old Library.
Looking through a pink window.
The boards make a bright backdrop for the children's playground.
If you're interested there's a Friends of Ashburton Park website which has information about the history of the park as well as a Friends of Ashburton Park Facebook page
I haven't managed to navigate the website very successfully yet. To view plans etc. you need to log in but I haven't found a way to log in as a guest or to join. I must look into it further.
All around the park the Horse Chestnut trees are in flower.
They're really worth a much closer look. The individual frilly little flowers on each cone shaped flower spike look as if they've been softly tinted with lemon and raspberry watercolours.
Thank you very much for joining me again.
