Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Kew Gardens

I visited the exhibition  at kew gardens today which they have called 'An explosion of colour'.  The display of orchids is breathtaking although I wasn't so impressed with the sculptures scattered amongst the flowers. The scultures were there to show the beautiful natural designs of seeds and fungi but as they were made from very unnatural materials for me it just didn't work. However the flowers were definitely worth a visit.
