      Oh yes this a lovely place even when there is no formal show. I’ve always wanted to share some pictures of the garden in its natural state – will do so in the near future. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂


  3. Lovely photos! You have such a nice blog. 🙂 It makes me feel at home, even though I am so far away at the moment. My mother is an excellent gardener, she would love this post as well. Best wishes to you!

    Very meaningful quote.
    A saying in the Share Market came to my mind:
    ” Do you have some blue chips in your portfolio?
    If yes; have one more.
    If no; have your first one.”
    This applies to friends as well.


  9. Oh, I do love me a great flower shot (and wander through a flower show too!)
