Today I visited .......


By neellan


It was another beautiful sunny day what could be better for a visit to Bodnant Gardens on the North Wales coast, here are some of the pictures I took starting with the famous Laburnum Arch – apparently I should have left it a week as the flowers are only just coming into bloom! still lovely though

This is the stunning view from the terrace

There is no trip here without including a picture of the Pin Mill so……

The Wisteria on the superb trellis pergola has a gorgeous perfume.

A bank of Azaleas

More Azaleas by the water

A stone arch through the trees and flowers

Himalayan Primulas and ferns looking super together at the waters edge

Some spooky looking ferns!!

These two white Hydrangeas (I think I’m right) have a lovely perfume

Another white Hydrangea with a pale pink Rhododendron

A colourful bank of Azaleas and some tourists!

I hope you enjoyed a look around just some of the delights that are to be found at Bodnant, their Mecanopsis Blue Poppy was in bud so no picture this time!!

Thanks for showing some photos of it. When we went a few years ago, it was closed due to flooding :o( So I never saw it. It looks a really beautiful place. That pin mill was interesting. Nice that you were able to go there.
