National Trust - Bodnant Gardens
Let me take you for a walk through the garden. Not our garden but the lovely gardens at Bodnant in North Wales. We love this place and like to go every opportunity we get. It's looked after by the National Trust and there is always something to see whatever time of year you go. It's definitely on my list of places to go and re-charge.
Unfortunately it's closed at the moment so we'll have to wait for our next visit.
The Wisteria is an amazing shade of purple.
Chilean Fire Bush
Blue Poppy of the Himalayas.
The old mill, which is now a coffee shop is nestled in the middle of trees and streams.

The Laburnum Arch which blooms in May every year. This year I believe it was a little late due to the weather.
The lake at the top of the gardens.
View from the house. On a clear days you can see right over the Welsh hills.
The house and wider estate isn't actually part of the gardens and is privately owned by the McLaren/Aberconway family. The gardens were given to the National Trust in 1949.
