[CANCELLED] Walk: Cherry blossom, Ham Lands
Mar 29 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
[CANCELLED] Walk: Cherry blossom, Ham Lands @ Ham House Car Park | England | United Kingdom

In Japan, the amazing cherry blossom is celebrated in remarkable fashion. Although our wild blossoms at Ham are not so spectacular, they are truly delightful and a welcome herald to Spring.

Come and join Friends of Ham Lands in this walk to enjoy and celebrate our blossom trees while learning about the different kinds of cherry and plum to be found at Ham. Along the way, there will be an exploration of other early flowers (sharp-eyed children will be good at this!).

This linear walk will cover both North and South Ham Lands.

Meet at Ham house car park, Richmond at 1.45pm
