As the saying goes .....
Life gets in the way of your plans! Apologies to followers, but that's just what happened.
Time out for a little freedom
So to get away from it all, whilst Malcolm is busy working his little butt off, I decided to use the Annual Membership, bought by my son, to Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Romsey and take time out for a little freedom away from computer, phone and other slightly stressful happenings! :)
Profusion of colour is an understatement
Bursting with Snowdrops, Winter Aconites, Syclamen, Hellebores, Dogwood, Witchhazel and miniature Iris to name but a few.
Well to be honest these are the only ones I know or could find online! :)
Without further ado
only images will suffice as you will see .....
I have many more images of pathways that you feel the need to explore and some of the wonderful sculptures around these gardens, but for today it is the most amazing colours that I wanted to show you.
Food glorious food
After the walk, which was a little on the cold side, I was in need of a little warming soup.
The cafe here is welcoming and the menu is very tempting, but I still opted for the soup, which was served with a generous helping of crusty bread. Delicious.
And with a fabulous view over the gardens you can sit and eat, savour and drink in this amazing experience.
As you can see I was charmed by the magic of Hillier :)
There is always plenty to see and lots of events, art classes etc here at Hillier and a great place for kids to let off steam in the school holidays too.
But don't take my word for it ......
Visit their website for more information, opening times etc.
See you next time ......
