G is for... Gardening


I'm hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooome!

I have good news! First of all, as you can probably tell, I am feeling so much better. It was nice just to take two weeks off and not have to worry about posts and comments, interviews and the like. It gave me time to just rest, which I did, and it has paid off. Thank goodness. 

Before I start todays blog though, I need to give a shout out to the wonderful Natalie over at Misadventures in Craft for hosting Learn Your ABC while I was away, it was really kind of her and amazingly helpful.

So today, I decided that G is for Gardening. 

I like gardening. I'm no good at it, but I like it. I love the final result more than anything, just to be able to sit in the back garden with my knitting and say 'look at what I made'. 

My favourite thing about gardens, ultimately, is flowers. And what I love more than sitting and looking at flowers, is photographing them. And over the years, in my opinion anyway, I've managed to get some nice shots! So today I thought I would share them with you, enjoy!

I took a snap of this daffodil down at Cotehele house in Cornwall. It is apart of the National Trust, so everything there is kept in tip-top condition, and the flowers there are absolutely gorgeous!

The next few are ones I snapped while at the Eden Project (again in) Cornwall. The Eden Project is a global garden inside and out of these amazing domes. Which look a little something like this:
I highly recommend visiting if you're in the area, and make sure you go for the entire day as a couple hours will fly by! Here are a few of the flowers I snapped while there!






This photograph was taken down at Buckland Abbey in Devon, which was home to Sir Francis Drake! It was amazing walking through both the house and the gardens, my friends and I even got to dress up, and of course I was stuck as the blind peasant, (they made me take my glasses of, there argument being 'they didn't have them in the olden days')

So there you have it. If you'd like to find out what others reckon G is for, click the links in the Mr.Linky below!
