A Day Trip to a Wonderful Garden


Today, Mr Flowergarden and I headed off for a day trip together.
I was excited to be seeing one of my new found favourite gardens in the Springtime.

The roses that my Aunt grows from seed, are truely amazing!
There were so many beautiful ones.

The garden was magnificent, and everywhere I looked there were special treasures with stories to go with them.  It was such a treat to walk around with her and hear the threads of the history unraveling.

Some familiar favourites, and some new wonders . . .
 
 

The weather was particularly rotten on our drive there, but after a lovely Saturday lunch with freshly picked and cooked vegetables from the garden and the traditional fare, the rain stopped for my walk, and the sun shone.
 
 

I've decided I will visit again, in every season, and see the magic of this garden unfurl.

Thanks for a lovely day Beth and John, and it was especially great to meet up again with cousin Janet.

What a lovely walk! It sounds as if your foot held out quite nicely for the duration.
