Cherry blossom in St. James’s Park

We spent last weekend visiting Washington, D.C. and was just in time to see all of the beautiful cherry blossom in bloom.

But … nothing was quite as stunning as this image shot by photographer Patrizia Ilaria Sechi in London’s St. James’s Park. Positively gobsmacking!

Furzey Gardens

I’ve been catching up on this year’s Chelsea Flower Show and have been particularly taken by the story behind gold medal-winning garden Furzey Gardens, which was created by a team of young adults with learning disabilities.

With a budget of £60,000, raised through fundraising, they created this gorgeous woodland design, rich with rhododendrons, azaleas and primulas.

See in photos how the garden was built from start to finish!
