GARDEN VISIT - Part one.
On Sunday afternoon John and I visited a local garden that belongs to the National Gardens Scheme, it is open to the public just one afternoon each year and it really is a delight.
Bronclydwr Garden is about 3 miles from where we live and it is tucked in at the foot of the lower slopes of the mountains as they roll down to meet the sea. The garden is about 1 acre in size and is described as being.... A unique plantsman’s garden of a peaceful historic farmhouse overlooking Cardigan Bay’.
Its unique position has created a little micro climate all of its own and many unusual and tender plants grow including, I quote from the booklet... protea, puya, amicia, echiums, watsonias, arums, beschorneria yuccoides, euryops, restios etc. etc. There are also many un usual trees, shrubs, bamboos, a bog garden and a wild wooded area.
We really did have a wonderful time and I’d like to share a few of the photographs we took.
