Roses galore!

I'm back safely from the most wonderful trip back home to England, travelling across Sussex, Dorset and into Devon.  We visited gorgeous gardens nestled in amongst rolling hills, Winnie The Pooh Country, wild ponies on Exmoor & breathtaking coast.  Having taken more than 1000 photos I need to sort through them a bit, but will share a small selection so you too can share in my journey and escape into these worlds for a while.

So to start off we visited Borde Hill in Sussex,  their rose garden full of many David Austin roses was enchanting.  I'll let them talk for themselves!








Now I'm back busy days getting orders out and starting on some new custom projects.  To have some fun I've just launched a Christmas In July Sale in my Etsy Shop, just enter the Coupon Code CIJ2011 at checkout for 15% discount off everything for a short time only! There is also a very special sale on my Bears, go and say hello here. Lots more photos to come soon.  Thanks so much for visiting, It's always a treat to see you. Catherine x

So glad you had a wonderful time along the South Coast. Beautiful Borde Hill. I especially love the ruffled rose in the midst of the lavender. I really must visit. x
