The letters toward the end of the alphabet  are always the most difficult.  I have nothing for U.  So here are some pictures of pretty flowers.

We went back to Richmond Park, to Isabella Plantation (see autumn pics in this post).  This time, the spring flowers had begun blooming.  The garden is filled with monster rhododendron and azalea plants, as well as narcissus and other things growing here and there.

Heather and azaleas are in bloom.  Purple on purple–I wanted to swim in it.

Rhododendrons, towering like the hedges at Manderley.

FINALLY, I got to see some real English bluebells.  Someday, I’d like to go to the woodlands somewhere and see them growing in a huge carpet.

And last, a huge profusion of color exploding from a mix of azaleas and rhododendrons.

A riot of flowers Isabella

This is the bit that made me say, “Uhhhh….”

I wish more than ever that I could stay here somehow.
