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!

Emmetts Garden

Emmetts garden is located on top of the Weald of Kent. It is known for the spectacular bluebells which flower in Spring. I went along this morning as the sun was shining and  a walk was needed after the wet weather we have experienced over Easter.

The bluebells were just beginning to bloom which meant there was a beautiful blue haze surrounding the trees through the woodland walk.

I was surprised that the rhodedendrons had also begun to flower and were showing off their spring colours.


  1. Hi There, Thanks for coming to my blog...I hope you come back often. I am enjoying yours. I laughed at your blog title --because it could be mine --except that I'm going to be 70 in August ---so my title would be "After 70--the Next Ten". Ha ha

    Love that Rhododendron --and the Bluebells... We have a wildflower in Texas in our country similar to your Bluebell.. It's name is Bluebonnet...

    Thanks again.

  2. Spring is beautiful. The bluebells are gorgeous. My mother 's favourite flower.

  3. Beautiful bluebell carpeting in that photo! We haven't got many flowers in my part of Spain, so I enjoy seeing the ones people put on on their blogs! :o)


Thank-you for reading my blog. I would love to read your comments.
