After our visit to Prudhoe Castle, we went to Bradley Nursery & Gardens, had a spot of lunch and applied our macro lenses to capture some of the blooms.
The magnolia’s had nearly finished blooming.
but the bluebells were gorgeous.
Not sure what this plant is but I liked it’s curly wurlyness. Didn’t get enough blur in the shot to make the plant stand out so took this into photoshop and selected the plant and applied gaussian blur to the background, need more practice at it.
They had some strange garden decorations, I mean, would you??
and though this one was quite nice, at £124 without the base, ($187/E167) I’ll give it a miss 🙂
Loved the water feature,
and they had lots of gorgeous tulips on display
pansies too and violas
I’m not sure what these are but they’re ready to pop by the looks of them
buds on trees ready to go too
my favourite flowers were these little hearts
and that’s the end of my day out with Sophie & Mike.
Today is a bank holiday so back to work tomorrow, and hopefully another trip out somewhere at the weekend.
