Warning - you may be here for some time!!
Dunham was beautiful - lots of colour and lovely greens!
I can't decide whether I like ferns most when they are fully grown or whether this gentle unfurling is the best time!
Looking forward to walking round the rose garden soon!
Someone had been putting seed down for the squirrels, this one wasn't sure about me at first but decided that I wasn't that scary!
I never tire of this view whatever the time of year!
Another squirrel being tempted....
...this one had a lovely curly tail!
Another of my favourite views!
A final shot down the lake.
We spent so long in the gardens that we ended up having lunch there - but more of that another time, when hubby has his photos ready!
Now for more flowers and creatures...
I am entering my Calendar journal page at Art Journal Journey where Jo has chosen Flora and Fauna as the new theme!
I have used my new Carabelle Studio stamps designed by Azoline alongside some older stencils and flower stamps also by Azoline!
I coloured them in using some cheap sparkly pens from The Works and spread the colour with a water brush.
You may notice mention of a wonderful gift I received from my eldest son the day before we set of for our trip.
This took him while to make and I can see why! His inspiration was finding the unusual shaped piece of wood. I think Elizabeth(the Queen of recycle) will like this! It is quite large and heavy and I still have to find a permanent space for it!
Don't you just love the 'Made in Britain' label?
Thanks for looking, Chris
