Last week was eventful for me, not only was it my birthday on St Valentines Day but I gave up my job and took retirement, we had a bit of a party on Tuesday evening but I won’t bore you with the photos, you can see them on Flickr if you wish.
By way of celebration I met my friend and we when on a photographic expedition to RHS Hyde Hall Gardens, so much colour to be seen here and beautiful reflections in the lake of the glorious winter day.
But spring was definitely in the air as we found with these Ladybugs
These gardens are undergoing great changes and we were tempted along this woodland path
To see the beautiful display of Camellias
The crocus’s were also putting on a lively show too
There was colour everywhere
Provided here by Dogwoods, Heathers and evergreen shrubs.
I hope you have enjoyed my walk around Hyde Hall and my first afternoon of freedom!
Walk with me again soon
