Picture of the Week #17

Standard

An outing to wild Wakehurst – a sibling of Kew Gardens in Sussex.

Lots of woodlands, walks and great colours from Rhododendrons and Azaleas.

Sending everyone much love. You mean so much to me. ❤️

Food for thought

When words are 
both true and kind
they can change the world.

Spring is here with more colours than ever.

Kew is just magical.

Tulips are still blooming

Then there is plenty of more pink and purple.

Fun Fact:

Fossils have revealed that magnolia plants existed at least 20 million years ago. Magnolia officinalis bark is used in traditional Chinese medicine remedies to improve lung health and treat anxiety.


Apple Blossom – so pure white

Trees green, pink, red make a wonderful contrast.


We found plenty of Bluebells


Still in the woodlands we found Camassias- from the asparagus family.

Delicate flowers bending in the wind.

A real splash of vibrant colour gave this Rhododendron bush.

Nature is the best healer, relaxer and

the best happiness generator for me! ♥

for those who want to see them.”

Picture of the Week #14

Standard

We are staying with fireplaces this week,

as we found another beautiful fireplace in another room,

hidden behind a 50’s wooden board.

before and after

After cleaning and repainting, it will look great.

It is so much fun to discover new things and to restore them.

Food for thought

Most of the things you see, touch, and use today
were thought to be impossible as little as 10-20 years ago.
"Impossible" usually only means
"hasn't been done... " yet.
This one started to bloom……. with all this rain and wind we are having at the moment.
