Of course it is now September and the latest finish is of course the September wordplay.
I have one more to show you. I have been stitching Faith with Sally the sheep virtues ,and I will show you that hopefully finished next week , as I have just the inside of the border to do. Now for our outing last week We tootled along the coast a little way to Abbotsbury and went to the Sub tropical gardens. Martin decided we would have a season ticket so we can go more often , I was really pleased about that. As soon as we walked in I saw a plant that I thought was unusual and it is called a pokeweed in America.
It looks a bit motheaten,but the berries looked like buttons.Lots of the plants there Dale (the gardener that planted out garden)had planted in ours. So let me take you fora little meander,.
This was ERN!
Just love the grasses they had there. Looks a bit abstract doesnt it.
It really is a beautiful place ,and we wandered about oohing and ahhing.
Agapanthus ,a lovely shade of blue ,but not shown to their full advantage ,blame the photographer.
View from the top of a very steep climb. Looking toward Portland and the Fleet.
Another view through the trees was St Catherines Chapel.I thought I would show you that one but maybe next time as I shall have to fiddle and turn it round ,you could tilt your head I suppose ,I will wait till next time.
Loved the bark on this tree , so shiny it could almost have been polished.
Everything is so darn BIG here ,it is almost like being in a jungle at times.
We then walked through the sculpture bit . I wont bore you with too many of the pics I took . This Buddah welcomed you .
Then my favourite caught my eye. Really liked this one.
I really took an awful lot of pics here but I do not think we will wade through all 98 of them.Martin was just going over the red bridge and I got him.
I think that is all I am going to show you of Abbotsbury tropical gardens , but I will show you one last flower or maybe two. The birds kindly planted some of their seed and we have this happy sunshiney face by the birdfeeder at the front of the house.
It is multiheaded so we are hoping for more .
So my dears that is the doings of Barb and family. Hope you like the trip round the gardens it is a must visit for anyone down this way. Thanks for commenting and hope you are all keeping well. I am tickety boo and hope to get more stitching done before next you visit. Take care and bye for now.
