My goodness, what do we have here? Blue skies and sunshine! Yippee! Certainly cause for celebration in the josiekitten household. It's been such a gloomy few weeks, with the wettest April on record, and dull, miserable weather. So Mr JK and I wasted no time, and set out for a visit to one of our favourite gardens - the Old Vicarage at East Ruston. There is so much to see here, we never get bored. There are interesting archways and windows cut into hedges, drawing you deeper into the garden.
These ferns looked stunning with the sun shining through them - they've almost uncurled themselves.
The topiary has been cut into shape. I wouldn't want it in my own garden, but here it just fits perfectly.
The bluebells were in full flower, a real reminder that spring is here (better late than never!) We have a few growing in our garden, although not all of them are blue. A few rogue pink ones seem to have crept in from somewhere!
This pathway always seems magical to me - you almost expect it to lead to a fairy glen. It's the kind of place I would have loved to play in as a child.
This alium is just about to burst into flower. I do like these blooms, so majestic.
There are pots and tubs of flowers everywhere you look. These were some of my favourites, pink daisies.
And what do you do when you've been walking round for an hour or so? Enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of cake! Mmmmmmmmmm!
Call back in again tomorrow, I've loads of yarny things to show you! xxx
