Whimsy & Parties?

How welcoming is that? These are (yes, I know, again!) a few photos I took at the Botanical Gardens. I love the place as you have probably noticed!

These photos make me think so much of the Secret Garden with all its archways and nooks. I love it! At the Festival there was a white rabbit, the Queen of Hearts and all so it even more so has such a whimsical effect.

In other news as I have almost reached the 200 followers mark, I have been wondering whether or not to start a blog party here at Kirsty Girl. I would really appreciate your comments on this. It just seems like such a great way to get to know all your blogs and for everyone to mingle. Which is one of the great things about blogging. Of course the biggest benefit to you would be getting some traffic! If all goes well I may showcase my favourites too.

Let me know your thoughts.
