It was the last day of June and we decided to spend and afternoon at Picton Castle
It was a miserable afternoon
and threatened rain.
To my mind the best time to visit is May
when the Azaleas etc are blooming but we did see the occassional azalea and this lovely white Rhodo
We walked through the gardens
to the Walled Garden.
This has really been changed and replanted
but I still really enjoy visiting it...
trouble is, that with the poor weather this year, the plants don't seem to have grown so well!
The dogs looked pretty fed up.......
whilst their owners examined the plants!!
These are some of the medicinal herbs with plaques
declaring what they can heal
I thought that this rose was just lovely!!
Perhaps this should be
as well for her.......Special Birthday!!
This pink rose is for Beverly for her Pink Saturday
We decided that the Fernery was a must!
Isn't this a lovely tree?
Just made for climbing on...so we did!!
We headed back towards the castle
and took one look backwards towards....
the Walled Garden
and then into the courtyard for.....
a drink and an icecream!!
