Flowers collection from different gardens I have been or even from streets

So I hope you’re enjoyed my first youtube video, and I am already planning some more! Today I am going to share photos of gardens, flowers I have collected over the years (and overcrowded my iphone tremendously!). Ok so you know I am obsessed with flowers… I found all these images as I was having a tidying up of my phone and computer and felt compelled to share them with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

IMG_1214These gorgeous small roses are from Holland Park in London.IMG_1442IMG_1444IMG_1446Some roses I just had to photograph outside my friend’s building, she was late so I was waiting outside and those roses in full bloom were just so beautiful.IMG_1532IMG_1533IMG_1539IMG_1554IMG_1569IMG_1571I saw and visited this wonderful and magical garden last summer, I was invited to a friend’s wedding in the Sussex and stayed at a B&B near by. The Morning after, the owner gave us a tour of the garden. Bearing in mind I was hangover, and (now I can tell you…) I lied & called in sick to stay for the brunch that day (a very british wedding tradition that I love!) and as a bonus saw this incredible garden, life couldn’t have been better!IMG_1898A beautiful rose I saw at the Brompton Cemetery while I was drawing and painting a while back there. I used to live very close by, such a charming place in it’s weirdly unique way.IMG_2570IMG_2576IMG_2578These wonderful flowers are from my friend’s kitchen! She works for a Japanese restaurant and they have those in the window, but as soon as they stop blooming they would throw them away! So she would take them home and put them in her kitchen. She has magic green fingers because all of them would bloom tremendously again and again. And now her kitchen is filled with the orchids, she has no where to put them! IMG_4948IMG_4958IMG_4965IMG_4972IMG_4973These more recent photos are from the New York Botanical garden in the Bronx. I went there to see the Frida Kahlo exhibition, and also wandered about it’s so big and beautiful. You get lost in there. I especially loved the pond with most enchanting lotus flowers. There were incredible. I will soon do another post on this trip to this very special place that is the New York Botanical garden.
