There aren’t too many places you can go at the moment in the UK if you want an afternoon out, especially if you have a wife and daughter who aren’t big fans of dogs (my son is quite partial to them.) Thankfully we are members of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and managed to book a space for this afternoon. Like most attractions in England they are managing to hold on using the furlough scheme and I imagine the smaller number of staff they have kept active are working very hard to keep everything open and tidy. We had a lovely couple of hours looking at the trees in bloom, spring flowers and of course the playground.
