Grace in Petals

I’m looking forward to spring and the arrival of insects and flowers. In the meantime I’m remembering the summer and some beautiful graceful flowers I saw down in Compton Acres in Dorset.

In among the flowers

While at Compton Acres (what now seems like a long time ago), it wasn’t just flowers we saw. In amongst the flowers, in various locations around the gardens were various sculptures. I didn’t photograph them all, but here are a selection of fun things found among the flowers.

Fiery Colours

I’m back to my normal life of work etc after holidaying down in Bournemouth with my sister. So I’m cheering myself up by remembering these lovely fiery blooms from Compton Acres last week:

Lilies

As well as the Waterlilies there were a whole bunch of non-water Lilies … if you see what I mean. I particularly love the light on the yellow Lily which I think is a Tiger Lily.

Waterlilies

How about some waterlilies? These photos, and some of yesterday’s, were taken at Compton Acres, some lovely gardens in Poole. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area and you enjoy a nice walk among lovely flowers. They also sell delicious quiche in the cafe 🙂
