Tatton, Tag And Taking A Closer Look

 Hi everyone, I have another page for Aimeslee's 'Flowers' theme at Art Journal Journey. I also have some photos taken the last week at Tatton Park.

I became quite interested in taking some close up shots with my i-phone.

The scent from these yellow Rhododendrons was fantastic

The ferns are still coiled up... 

...and some Rhododendrons are still in bud

While looking at this pot of tulips nearing the end of their flowering.......

....we saw that the Conservatory was open for the first time in ages

There is also a Fernery

I hope you enjoyed the visit!
Now to my"Flowers' Journal page.I am taking a closer look at this Aall And Create Daisy.

I took a separate pic of the quote by Alison Bomber (from a Paper Artsy set). Spring is definitely here now!
In also made a tag for Valerie's 'Travel' theme at Tag Tuesday.
I recycled a card I made with Crafty Individuals stamps - I added the word and some doodling around the edge of a tag I cut from the card.

Thanks for looking, Chris

What a super page and tag, Chris. Love the details - the kite! - on the tag, and that daisy is stunning on your inked background. Tatton Park looks like a cure for whatever ails one, lovely photos and I had no idea that a fernery was a thing! Thanks so much for linking up at AJJ and happy new week to you, xoxo
