... just a quick post with some photos that I took yesterday at Ness Gardens. It was so lovely - the weather was perfect - warm with hazy sunshine - great for pictures. And spring is so here!! The birds were singing their hearts out. My Mum and I had a wonderful time walking round looking at the beautiful flowers, enjoying the sounds of the birds, the buzzing of bees and sounds of gardeners in the grounds. A lovely way to spend the morning.
Hellebores or Christmas Roses - such a lovely sight in early Spring gardens - there are a lot of them around Ness Gardens - in all sorts of colours. This is a fabulous deep pink one - there are also pale creamy white ones. And I was really lucky, as my Mum bought me a couple for my garden. And I know just where they're going to go.
When I was a little girl - I think one of the first signs of spring was the appearance of primroses. We used to live in a little village in Devon - and I have memories of walking along hedgerow paths and see these tiny, pale yellow flowers lining the edges of the path. And they still bring back great memories. So it was lovely to see this super patch of primroses at Ness - they have them in pink too!!
