Flower Power

This morning I was playing badminton and walked to and from the Leisure Centre through both Castle and Ward Park as well as the Walled Garden taking photos as I went.  I did take a few birds and video and I will show those aonther day as I don't have the time to up load the video.  So today again it is mainly flowers and I have experimented a bit with some of the shots.

Above is the entrance to the Walled Garden and is just opposite the car park for the new Lesisure Centre and the groundsmen are still plaing turf and flower beds.  These are 2 different photos of the turf they were laying today.

 Thanking you for visiting today.  I would love you to look in again.


  1. love the garden tunnel and the rolls of turf - like cinnamon rolls. :)

  2. Looks like you had a pleasant walk in the sunshine this morning Margaret? (it's rained all day here!!)

    You've captured a great set of colourful flower images, the Iris is beautiful and I really like the turf shots...well spotted...[;o)

  3. Hi Tex I will go back again in the 'summer' and take another photo of tunnel to see how it has changed. Thanks for comment. I don't think the turf would taste like cinnnamon!! Margaret

  4. Hi Trevor. Yes sun all day here. I captured ore flowers but they can wait for another day. I am trying to process the video. Takes forever!!! Margaret

  5. Another great set Margaret.
    I love that last one of the Iris; and the first one of the rolls of turf. That's a great image.

  6. Hi Keith Many thannks for your kind comments. I was asked today to enter a photo competitation and I don't really know what if any to enter. Any suggesstions? Margaret

    1. From today's selection, I'd say the turf, and the last Iris.

  7. Hi Keith Many thanks for your suggestion. I take it you mean the first turf not the B and W one.Margaret

  8. These are really beautiful images, Margaret. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to the gardens.

  9. Hi Margaret, It's nice to meet you. Sounds like you have and have had an exciting, fulfilling life... Hubby and I are retired and live on the mountain in Tennessee.. We love being out in nature --and spend our time hiking and searching for waterfalls. We also love gardening (Flowers) --and have about 57 different varieties of Hybrid Tea and Grandiflora Roses in our yard --in addition to many other flowers. I am into Genealogy --and in my 'spare' time (ha), I am a backyard birder. In fact, tomorrow's blog post is one you won't want to miss since you love birds too.

    Looks like you had a wonderful walk. I love the Walled Garden --and it reminds me of the Biltmore House and Gardens which we visit quite often near us. Beautiful flowers.

    Thanks for coming to my blog --and I hope you will return.


  10. Hi. You did a great job I liked your website and your posts. Wish you all good luck.
