For Especially in the Month of... March

On Saturday, Steve and I headed to the Winter Gardens in Duthie Park because we had heard there was a flower show on. We heard right.

I think anything which prompts us to wander around the Gardens is a good thing. I love them. Especially when they're filled with flower show hyacinths and smell absolutely gorgeous.

Steve was less excited but my usual cronies were unavailable so he put on a brave face. He told me he's storing up brownie points for when he eventually drags me to Warhammer World (I can't find a link but it's Nerdvana in Nottingham). He doesn't need to - what photos I could take in there!

Which brings me back to the point. This, believe it or not, is an extremely small selection of the pictures I took as we wandered around.

  4. Theres a warhammer world?! Note to self: never tell my boyfriend that! Fantastic photos - I love looking at flowers but I'm not much of a gardener. Kinda wish I was, I'd to see images like that when I look out my window.

  7. I take that same pinwheel picture every single time we go there - you'd think I'd get bored of it eventually, but no.

  9. Ha ha - yeah, if he starts mentioning how nice Nottingham looks this time of year, you know why...!

    I occasionally try to grow plants but the cats are a bit over-enthusiastic about pruning them. It never ends well.

  10. I spend a bit too much time on the council's What's On page.

    The one with the ponies should be on soon, I think...
