|Dingoes in the house!|
|The huge greenhouse with some amazing plants.|
|Inside the greenhouse, I believe this is the palm house|
|And this, boys and girls, is where chocolate comes from|
|I am pretty sure these are lotus blossoms|
|Part of the Princess of Wales conservatory collection|
|I love seeing these! A type of water lily I believe|
|Serious Japanese maple envy|
The greenhouses were spectacular, as were the grounds. That is one of those places that I need to back and see again- so much of London I didn't get to experience.
|Those roses, though|
|I wish I had taken more time photographing this|
|Loved the little vignettes that were everywhere|
I regret not writing this post closer to June, but that is me. I am a procrastinator. but hey, at least I got my calendars done in plenty of time this year. And didn't pull any bonehead moves like having it printed with white numbers on a white background. That I don't even know how it happened, other than I fiddled around with things a lot last year... I started downloading pictures way way earlier for this one, and paid attention to such things. Goodness. I might have a couple "art" calendars left and possible one abandoned house one, so if anyone wants one, let me know.
I can not begin to thank my hosts enough for the amazing trip I had back in June. I think of it often, and when they post on facebook or Instagram I relive those moments again. And I am so ready for more travels and I know that I can do any form of transportation I need thanks to the help from my dear friends, Anne-Sophie, Mark and Jonny. They hold special places in my heart.
Conquer your fears and find your joy. Be brave, be ferocious, give it your all and give up control. Life will give you those unexpected joys when you stop trying to direct it in any one direction.... if you stop trying to control your journey, you just might get where you always wanted to be.
