Happy Birthday to meeeee *hums along to self*
Well this morning I made the most of a day to myself and headed to nearby, previously un-visited, Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, Romsey, accompanied by glorious sunshine. You know how I have been going on relentlessly about being desperate to see blossom? Well...
And the scent from the Nepalese paper plants was awesome, so fragrant. I openly admit to loitering close to them sniffing for an absurdly long amount of time.
The gardens were larger than I imagined, so I'll have to write up a proper post about them over the weekend, but in this post are some of my fave bits. And when I say fave bits I mean 'a shed load of photos of camellia'. But I'm guessing after a Winter of non-colourful photos you are going to forgive me!
I always feel really bad walking over fallen blooms, so I picked some up and made a little pile to one side - imagine my little face beaming away as I took this next photograph...
And a quick visit to the shop on the way out, obvs.
It's been a bright and beautiful birthday and I'm full of the joys of Spring! Many thanks to all who joined in last week, some faves are shown below, click on the image to visit the post:
