I have twice previously written and posted about Pruhonice Park, a magnificent landscaped park that lies just south-east of the city of Prague. Sybille and I first visited Pruhonice Park in the summer of 2012 about which you can read and see numerous photographs here. Then in May this year, we re-visited in order to see the amazing display of flowering rhododendrons for which the park is particularly famous.
Last Monday, on my regular day-off, we made our third visit in order to see Pruhonice Park in Autumn and were not disappointed. Once more, there were remarkably few visitors and we were able to thoroughly enjoy the wonderful Autumn colours on display. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, so this post will be more pictures than words.
During our visit, I took about seventy photographs and I’ve had great difficulty choosing a small number of them, with which to illustrate this post. But I hope those that follow, will give some impression of the beauty of Pruhonice Park in the Autumn.
I had not realised until I checked the park website, that it too, had suffered from the floods of early June 2013. However, as we explored the park last Monday, we saw several examples such as the one in this photograph, of trees which had been completely uprooted and fallen sideways, presumably because of floodwaters washing away the soil around their roots.
Additional colour was also provided by this display of Michaelmas daisies.
