When we lived in England, on the border of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire,
we drove by the sign for Waterperry Gardens all the time.
Spring was Springing, we had a visitor over from Australia and
despite an overcast and chilly day, I grabbed my chance to
take my little family on a garden adventure with our visitor.
Waterperry Gardens is 8 acres of beautiful gardens.
A riverside walk lined with daffodils A meadow filled with
Snakeshead fritillaries, my absolute favourite native English wild flower.
Formal gardens, rose gardens and a herbaceous border.
Magnificent Magnolia's in bloom, Fruit trees budding
Springtime filling the air with perfume.
A lovely way to soak up the countryside in Spring,
or any time of the year, England has a flower for every season season.
Aren't these the most amazing flower, the chequerboard petals,
the bell shaped flowers nodding in the breeze.
Also known as the chequered daffodil!
They are sure to be home to the trendiest of fairies!!!
