Ghostly Galleon - m.joy


The Highwayman

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor

And the highwayman came riding—
         Riding—riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.

Kew in the Country

Blue Hydrangeas - M.Joy

 

Visited this Garden this weekend and it was being set for a Wedding.

Took my parents and my dad told us about Sir Henry Price the ’50 Shilling Taylor’ who was the last person to own Wakehurst before it was donated to the National Trust and then leased by Kew to be its Garden in the Country. Please read about him here – he was an amazing man.

This is one of the most beautiful Gardens in Sussex. Its huge with Californian Redwoods, a Himalayan Glade, several lakes, the Millenium Seed Bank, several Cafes, Deers, artists in residence and a place to be married
