A few weeks ago I met my dear blogging friend Brenda at Wisley in Surrey. For those of you who are not familiar Wisley is one of the Royal Horticultural Society's gardens and is a real gem. My Hb and I used to go very regularly but I haven't been for about 6 years. Wow things there have really moved on..the plantings now are just gorgeous. These are a few photos from our lovely day.
A field of alliums.
Peonies the size of saucers.
and stunning alpines in the rock gardens.
Years ago my Hb and I bought a shrub from Wisely and could never remember its name...Brenda and I found it
Cornus kousa var.chinesia ..a variety of dogwood
and here is my one at home...
For my card challenge today I am sharing a floral tag. The lovely girl dancer, nest and branch stamps are by Rubber Dance. I coloured her with watercolour pens.
It sums up our wonderful day out.
I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges;
