Welcome to my newest blog. What is a kimberline you ask? Well where I live in Portland, Dorset, it is a nickname given to newcomers to the Island. Yes Portland is an Island seperated from Weymouth by a causeway. Its part of the Jurassic coast and I love living here. I will be posting lots of different things I hope you enjoy visiting here.

Photo's of cheer

I just thought I would share what is flowering in my garden at the moment.  My favourite flowers are crocus and snowdrops and daffodills and we have lots at the moment.  I cant wait til the crocus open out properly.  Makes me feel so cheerful.

Does anyone know what this little shrub is?  IT was in the garden already when we brought the house.  I cant decide what it is.  Maybe one of you know?

Butterflies galore

Hi everyone.  Well I have had a wonderful weekend.  We drove up to Surry to the RHS Wisley Gardens near London to see the butterflies they have in their glass house.  The drive was nearly 3 hours but we had a lovely day and it was so worth it.  After we got over the trauma of trying to find a car parking space which took nearly twenty minutes, we decided to eat first as it was lunchtime already.  Then we walked around the gardens to the glass house and it was amazing.  IT was so big.  It was just like being in the tropics and the plants were wonderful.  SO many. 
Here are some of the highlights of what we were amazed by, even Rob was struck by the place.

I hope everyone who celebrates valentines day has a wonderful time.  Us, we are having a quiet evening in with a bottle of wine after having a peaceful day.  It was nice having Rob at home for the day as it is our first valentines day as a married couple.
