I have only had 4 hours sleep and driven over 450 miles in the last two days!!!! For those in the UK - I have done the M4 from end to end twice!! I live approximately in the middle of the motorway. Firstly yesterday I drove to London to help my daughter move house (yet again!!) - that was an early start up at 5am to beat the traffic on the M25 and to get her moved in a day. Home very late - exhausted, only to get up early again today to drive in the other direction into Wales (110 miles in that direction!!) to see an exhibition called Paper Culture at the National Botanic Gardens of Wales. The exhibition is by two artists - Sue Evans and Anita Bowyer. Sue makes the most delicious dresses out of paper - thanks to Julie M for the info on this!!!!! The weather was just perfect today for spending the whole day in the Gardens and boy are they stunning!! I have taken over 120 photos just today!! There are some truly amazing plants. Both the exhibition and the gardens are definitely well worth a visit.

I am too exhausted to post any pics now - but tomorrow when I have uploaded them from my camera I will post some of the more exotic plants and a couple of shots of the exhibition.
