Exbury Gardens...............NOT!


By eirlys


I mentioned elsewhere that practically as soon as I set foot inside the gardens my camera charge ran out!

I had just photographed this lovely Spindleberry, a splash of colour but after that we somehow took the wrong turning and never saw the colourful display that we had been told about.

Ah well. As Scarlett said, “Tomorrow is another day”!

I like to see a Spindle Tree :)
What bad luck ... maybe you can go again another day :)

Oh now that I love, another for my wishlist....
Maddening about your camera Eirlys, we learnt our lesson many years ago and always buy a second battery and a car charger for emergencies, as Hywel said you have an excuse to go again......

this is a common tree along the old road in my village. they are beautiful aren't they.

Oddly enough I don't think I've ever seen one "in the flesh". they are beautiful.
Didn't "like"because I was so sorry your visit was rather disappointing - better luck next time)

I sympathise, Eirlys; we've all had one of those days where nothing goes right. I usually give up and let the day bring things to me instead.

That's a pretty pic you took there, Eirlys ... I'm always having to remind myself to charge up my camera battery... very easy to forget... good luck next time ...

Whilst de-cluttering I came across one of Other Half's 2015 stocking gifts It's a charger and torch still in its box!

I have charged it and hope that next time my camera loses its charge I can use this charger. Well that's the cunning plan but whether it will work remains to be seen.

Lot of " chargers" there. :O)

They do sell solar lithium battery chargers which allows you to recharge the camera in the car or wherever.
