The Guildford Castle gardens are a riot of colour at the moment, with a plethora of poppies in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.
The image has been altered (accidentally) to give the impression of an illustration rather than a traditional photograph.
A blustery day with rain showers. In a brief break in the rain, we wander around the castle grounds to look at the flowers.
It is funny what tiny details you can miss when you hurry on past. I didn’t notice the tiny raindrops on the petals until I was viewing the picture later on my computer.
Maybe summer is finally here!
With this beautiful weather we spent a civilised afternoon at the Rector’s Summer Garden Fete. As we wandered amongst the stalls chatting to friends, classical piano music floated across the immaculately kept gardens.
The stalls dotted around the gardens, had wonderful goodies on sale to raise money for charity.
After browsing, we finally succumbed to purchasing this yummy carrot cake which we plan to enjoy with afternoon tea.
There was a stunning display of flowers. Not sure we identified what they all were.
Some of the poppies flowers has passed leaving these poppy heads.
I miss the dogs my parents had when we were teenagers so I took the opportunity to make friends with this very cute King Charles Spaniel.
