Today is probably the last day we will manage to take Pinny out for the day before she returns home to the USA on Tuesday next week, so we thought we would take her to see the 'The Garden of the Rose'
We arrive early afternoon and start to wander through the lovely gardens.
We admire the roses and watch the bees busy pollinating.
Pinny has a smell to find out if it was these roses that were scented.
Hmm...this one smells nice.
Pinny takes a closer look to enjoy the scent.
These gardens are really beautiful, so many colours and scents to enjoy.
This trellis work is so pretty.
Lots of benches to just sit and relax.
Just look at these aren't they beautiful?
Pinny points out some roses she likes to me.
Suddenly we hear a voice calling...
My goodness another Sasha friend comes wandering over.
Hello Pinny and Henry, how are you enjoying gardens?
Hi there Holly, the gardens are just great aren't they? We reply.
We wander around together and discuss the roses and how our Mums love their gardens and in particular roses.
Our new friend then wanders off with her Mum...
She seems really nice Pinny says. What a great last name she has too! Just perfect considering where we are! Imagine having a name like Holly Rose...isn't it beautiful? Pinny sighs.
We enjoy walking through the rose covered pergolas.
Loving the ponds with the lilies, fish and water feature.
We lie and watch the fish for a while and admire the beautiful water lily.
Just 'chilling' out
This rose is cute. I wonder what it is called...
...and I think I am.
Some photos of the lovely flowers and roses.
