Rosie and I went to Wythenshawe Park today. We wandered through the gardens and the hothouses, taking photos. It was such a beautiful morning and our hours there passed easily and peacefully.
Such a strong pink, this lily…it seemed to vibrate.
Drink-My-Pinkness! What a confection.
The Buddha’s flower.
These birds sang their little hearts out as we sauntered through the hothouse. I’m surprised they had any feathers left though… Wo! the heat!!!! Rosie and I were spitting feathers by the end!
I want to live here!!! This was built in the park garden using traditional cob house techniques.. stone foundations, then sand, water and straw walls (about 2 feet thick, I reckon). Loved the turf roof too. Apparently cob houses built 500 years ago are still standing!
