Sometimes beautiful things happen by accident.

Today we were heading off to Arundel when the fuel warning light came on.

So I ended up taking a different route in order to put some motion lotion in the car.

Which in turn meant we headed off on  a different road to usual, and I suddenly remembered Highdown Gardens which I spotted on one of my many evening bike rides.

We were ready to fork out a few quid for entry, but soon discovered it’s free.

It was well worth seeing. The plants all reflect an affinity for chalk, which is the predominate mineral in the local hills and South Downs.

What I hadn’t anticipated was a delightful variety of wildlife.

I particularly pleased to see this beautiful “Comma”, and we also spotted a large White and Red Admiral in this delightful garden.
