A Welsh Country Garden Visited


By neellan


Today the sun was shining and a garden in the village had an open day! as it is up a long winding country lane there is a minibus to shuttle visitors to the garden.
The England Germany game was on tv and going badly so no contest – The cottage garden, woodland walks and stunning views – not to mention coffee and cakes were beckoning Camera in my bag so I thought I would share my afternoon out with you:

The cottage garden

A welcoming front garden

A lovely Poppy through bronze leaves

Another stunning Poppy

Through a Willow arch in the woodland walk

To the stunning view emerging from the woodland walk

Towards the welsh Mountains

An afternoon well spent I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did :o)

Hi Neena, what a brill idea to get away from the dreaded "F" word (it's banned in our house! Lol)

29 Jun, 2010


Hi Ian how are doing? yes it was one of my better decisions I'm so glad I went along
"F" has caused some long faces did you ban it before or after THE result? :o)

lovely. I really enjoy seeing pictures , and sharing stories, flower gardens etc. with people from all over the world! Thanks so much for sharing!

Oh the "F" word is on a constant ban here. It's like saying the other "F" word! Lol

We are doing really well thank you, getting the garden sorted slowly but surely.
