Glasgow Botanic Gardens

I had a visit to the Glasgow Botanic Gardens today and got some lovely photos. There were some lovely plants and flowers and it was very inspirational all I need now is a garden :)

Inside one of the glass houses

Beautiful flowers in the orchid house
(I really need to remember to write the names of the plants down)

Inside the Kibble Palace

This was a very strange plant its leaves looked like they were metallic silver
(wish I had got the name)

and finally...

Glasgow's crest and motto

I Win!!!!

I have won a competition !!! I never win anything.

I entered a Christmas baking competition on the iambakingmad Facebook page. To win you had to enter a photograph of your Christmas baking so I entered this photo...

and won! I thought it would be a random selection of the entries but they said they liked it and it looked like I had put allot of effort in. So what did I win I hear you ask? These cake tins and they will fit in perfectly with my Kitchen decor.

Happy New Year!!!

Well its the start of another year and time to look back at what has been and forward to all the new possibilities this year has in store for us. I love this time of year, I can let go of things that have happened and put all my energy into a fresh start. Its like a blank piece of paper or a new book your excited but not quite sure whats going to happen.

The last year has been a year of decision making. I got to a point in my life where I had to make some decisions. What do I want? Keep travelling? A proper job? A home? A family? Well last year was the decider.

I went for a home and family, something I have wanted to do since I was a little girl. I started renting my own flat last January. Then I had to make a decision about what I wanted to do for a career. Over the years I have picked up many skills and had wide range of jobs. The problem was these jobs were mostly seasonal and only lasted for a few months, so I wasn't really qualified to do any one thing, and nothing I would want to do as a career. Eventually I decided on Horticulture and started an HNC in August, and volunteering at my local national trust property.

So for the new year coming I am hoping for all my plans to work out and to start a career in horticulture and work on making my own family, but who knows what will happen.

The possibilities are endless!
