The laburnum arch at Bodnant,North Wales.

 We had a free day today so decided we would pootle down the coast to Bodnant.Bodnant Gardens are just outside Conway in North Wales about 45 minutes by car from our house.Bodnant is famous for its azaleas and rhodedendrons but also its laburnum arch.This week is the week to see it.It is truly magnificent and the photos don't really do it justice.If you can see it on a sunny day it is amazing but today was cloudy.
                                                   A closer look.
 Today we went in a part of the garden that hasn't been open before called the Yew Dell.This is looking down into the dell.
                                  Back to the main part of the garden and some beautiful irises.
                               They are part of this circular garden.
                                 A view from the Rose Garden over the lily pond.
                                 I wanted to share these photos with you as it is such a special place.I just 
                                 wish we had a sunny day for better shots.It was very busy,lots of coaches and
                                 cars.We then had a pub lunch and home for a quick snooze as I was so shattered
                                 with all the walking!!


  1. Bodnant Gardens are very special aren't they? I love it there! The laburnam arch is spectacular. I wish we could see a little more sun now I'm fed up with the rain:)

  2. I definitely need to visit this area of Wales, I've seen some lovely places on the TV recently and now this, that arch is beautiful.
    Last year I went to Ness gardens and thought that was lovely.

  3. Beautiful photos, thank you for taking us along.

  4. Beautiful pictures. We haven't been to see the laburnum arch at Bodnant for years. Maybe this weekend :)
