Snapshots from Capel Manor

I am busy writing up the rest of my RHS Chelsea Flower Show experience but until then I thought I would keep you all going with a quick plant fix! This is a selection of photos from Capel Manor College which I took before half-term. The gardens have really taken off, every inch is adorned with beautiful plants! Enjoy. πŸ™‚

    • I love the wisteria too! We have a lilac one at work, I think I prefer it to the pure white form πŸ™‚
      Where I used to work there were lots of different cistus plants, you can get one called Cistus ladanifer which is white with dark dots in the centre of the flower – it’s gorgeous! Thank you for reading and commenting πŸ˜€ x
