We started with a visit to Hollard Garden and also to the Farmers market that was being held there, where these delightful Scarecrow people took our attention..

We had all visited the Hollards gardens earlier in the year, but todays visit was really at the right time, The rhododendrons were in full bloom.

and every where you walked lovely burst of colour appears and not only the rhododendrons but the deciduous Azaleas were out standing

Joan and I were both busy with the camera. top photo is mine and the lovely view of the glowing orange azalea is her photo. And she also took this one of Paul and I, as I was getting a photo of the lovely soft apricot primulas. there were several other shades but the apricot really the ones that impressed me the most.

above the photo I was taken and here a close up shot by Joan.

How lovely to see your rhododrendrons! There are always so colourful and a sign of spring. Enjoy your lovely weather :-)

Aren't those the cutest scarecrows?! And your lovely flowers--I am so wishing we were heading into spring over here rather than fall and winter. It is a wet, cool, dreary day here in Pennsylvania, but your flower pictures help make it a bit brighter, Lee :)

I just love these primulas but cannot grow them very successfuly here.

Although not an embroiderer - I can just sew a button on my shirt - I wrote a post about the most beautiful embroidery work I have seen. You may find it of interest: it can be found on my blog Life in the English Cotswolds dated August 30th 2009.
