Postcards from a early summer holiday


On the way to Wales we stopped at Stockton Bury gardens.
I loved the Tulipa Sprengeri under the dappled light.

This was the view from the table eating breakfast each morning.
Nuthatch cottage, Cwm Irfon.

I could have spent all day sitting on the chair, enjoying the relaxed planting in the Parterre Garden at Whimble Gardens and Nursery.

Returned to Bryan's Ground to see the irises in full bloom.

It wasn't all gardens, we visited castles too!
The wonderful Carreg Cennan.

We came across hillsides covered in bluebells when we travelled the mountain road between Abergwesyn and Tregaron.

Found a surprising and delightful combination of Euphorbia griffithii 'fireglow' and Primula beesiana at Cae Hir Gardens.


Added Amsonia tabernaemontana to my 'must have' list after seeing it at the National Botanic Gardens of Wales.

Got dizzy looking up at the Cynghordy Viaduct.


We were fascinated with the formations of the coastline at New Quay.

Such a wonderful allium border! Enjoying a last garden on the way home, the lovely Abbey Dore Court Gardens.

Wish we were back there...
