Garden Bliss

Today I was browsing for things to do in the area we live and I stumbled upon the RHS Garden Wisley. Less than 5 miles from where we live, it looked very nice to visit on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I wasn't wrong. We had a wonderful time. We took a membership pack and received a wonderful book, which I didn't know I'd get as a gift by becoming member and almost bought. The kids received a backpack with some wonderful stuff. The best was a card with things they had to find in the garden, like lavender, sunflowers, tomatos, bumble bees together with a felt tip pen, which on the opposite side had a stamp with the image of a ladybird. So the kids had a lot of fun running around trying to find these things.

On a different note, having moved from the US to here, it's fun to rediscover UK favorites. Somehow I don't remember which jam we liked best, so I thought it would be fun to do a test and test several jams. I bought five to try, I'll let you know the result
