Morning Blogland Luvverlies! I "ran away" this weekend.. with a wonderful friend, to stay with a very dear friend, and on Saturday we invaded RHS Wisley with even more fabulous friends! It was a brilliant day... Wisley is so fantastic.. if you have never been.. you must! We go there every few months for a meet up, and I have to say, this time, Wisley was truly beautiful.. the colours were stunning.. piccies to follow! We were so lucky with the weather too.... rained all last week, raining as I type.. but Glorious Sun Shine on Saturday... How frightfully Civilized! :-)
Anyway.. we were a group.. 10 of us in total.. and it was lovely to catch up.. we walked and talked.. talked and walked, sat and had coffee and talked, walked and talked some more.. my back HATES me today, but it was sooooo worth it!
Very informative day too... (hence the Blog Title!). a friend and I discovered a VITAL piece of information that had been kept from us for waaaaayyyyy too many years..... WHY had we not known this before?? Oh the opportunities missed by us not knowing! We were almost crying with laughter (yes.. I admit.. neither of us has Maturity as our middle name.. nor do we want any of it!!) But, Oh, the hysteria in the Glass House.... we were getting some odd looks .. but we were too busy laughing and holding each other up to care!!! We also proceeded to giggle our way around the rest of Wisley while I was mentally composing suitable Blog Posts!
What was this piece of Vital Information we had been so sadly ignorant of?
I will show you (yes I HAD to take a picture cos it made us laugh so much... and No.. Maturity is not an issue in my life as previously stated!!!!)
OK.. so we both regressed into spotty pre-teen school boys laughing at the dirty joke.. but we did it soooo well! And there were Orchids everywhere... so the hilarity of the whole moment.. lasted!
I can appreciate that those who of a Horticultural mind will have known this, (I know Pretty Red Flower, Pretty Yellow Flower, Pretty Pink Flower etc, Rose, Daffodil, Tulip, Daisy and Sunflower.. all gets a bit foggy after that!!) and those whose humour does not reside in the gutter may not find it as funny as we did... But it made our day!
So... trying to redeem myself here from my filthy sense of humour, and make myself look adult and all that.. here are some pretty pictures.... of flowers, scenes, ducks, and yes.. Testicles!!!!! ( Hah! I said Testicles on my blog!!!!! )
I love this plant.. think it is amazing!
Such stunning colours!
Was totally taken by the faces in these.... Love them!
The "Caterpillar Cactus"!
Yes.. this one makes me and my friend giggle too!!!!
I think these are incredible.. they look like little nurseries for Fairy Babies!
