Last Friday myself and Gwennan (Twenty Something Meltdown) embarked on a little road trip to London to meet with Sarirah (Pretty Not Included) and Mel (Melberryy) for an Insta-walk. A missed turning, a wee bit of traffic, a sausage roll, and a good old gossip later we arrived in London ready to photograph the day away.
Usually getting friends together to do something is about as difficult as quantum physics, well not Sarirah, Gwennan and Mel (and Hannah should have been meeting us too but she couldn't make it in the end), it was just about the quickest and easiest meet up to organise ever! We discussed going somewhere pretty and quickly whittled the list down to Petersham Nurseries and the Isabella Plantation at Richmond Park: 'how about next week?' 'that works' 'ok see you there', you wouldn't have even believed it - it's unprecedented!
Gwennan came over from Wales to mine, just outside Bristol, bright and early, then we tootled on up the M4 and started our day at Petersham Nurseries. It's pretty much the most beautiful, most photogenic place going, a bloggers heaven.
We then took a short drive through Richmond Park to the Isabella Plantation to catch the last of the Camellia, Rhododendron and Magnolia blossoms before the flowers leave us for good. It was such a treat and we took full advantage, stopping for longer than is normal to take pictures in every nook and cranny.
