The Summer Holidays are well underway here at the garden and we have had so many lovely visitors through our gates 💖 

Its been such a pleasure to meet so many happy people who love our garden 💕 

Today I walked around the garden with a close-up lens on my camera (macro) which allowed me to look at the garden in a very different way to normal. It is amazing how incredible plants are when you see them so close; the moss in particular was astounding! It looks like a fluffy carpet. The moss garden has several types of moss growing in it and I tried to capture a couple of the varieties (without treading on any moss of course!). I also captured a few flowers including an azalea that is still showing off a few blossoms and the hydrangea which is boasting its bright pink petals for summertime.

Our stunning Koi carp are still holding off on breeding, but some of the female fish look ready to burst now. Having had a baby just over 18 months ago I can remember how hard it was to move towards the end of my pregnancy so I have the upmost sympathy for our pregnant fishies right now 😂 

We are feeding the fish twice a day now as they get very hungry at this time of year and I managed to capture some great shots of them as they fed.

The sunlight was shining through the leaves of the many acres growing in the garden and there were water droplets on some of the flowers and leaves from last nights rain. The rain gave the garden a fresh, vibrance which can only come from the infusion of water into the plants and the light bounces from everything as it reflects from the surfaces. 

The garden is still filled with vitality as life is present everywhere in abundance. The energy has a buzz to it at this time of year and the influx of new faces adds to this. Its been so wonderful to hear how much everyone has been enjoying the garden and so many have commented on how much work they can see has been done; which makes all our hard work so worthwhile!
