Flowers, Friends and Fairy Cakes

What’s even better than hunting flowers?Β  Hunting flowers with friends of course πŸ˜‰

Yesterday we met up with the family of the gorgeous Paula aka Motherfunker, who blogs here):

and had a trip to the gardens of a local National Trust property to check out the flowers.

Here’s a few pics:

Gman brought his camera and spent some time photographing blooms. Here he is trying to get the perfect peony shot:

Afterwards, there was time to share home-made fairy cakes. And, for the boys, some frenzied Pokemon trading in the carpark πŸ˜‰
