We had a couple of nights in Anglesey this week, and on our way home we stopped off at Bodnant Gardens in North Wales. What an incredible place!

It makes my back ache just thinking about how much work is required to maintain that place...

I used make the slate name plates in pic # 1 when I worked in the quarry up there :)

Lovely photos, Becky! Didn't you you're so good at composition and taking photos. What took you so long to reveal your secrets! Love that peony and the fern .. Just as I remember it!

Would love to walk under the laburnum arch .. Always too late!

How cool! The path on the way to the entrance was cut into natural slate, and it was fascinating. Didn't get any photos unfortunately!

Aw that's kind of you :happy: I really enjoy taking photos, and it's nice that my back is strong enough again to let me. I seem to get myself into weird positions - I'm always crouching on the ground and people look at me like I'm mad!
