We visit Bodnant Gardens often – it’s about an hour and half from Manchester, inland from Conwy on the North Wales Coast. It’s one of our favourite places – there’s always somewhere beautiful to walk, time to stop and smell the flowers, relax and enjoy the scenery – the garden overlooks Snowdon.
Last Saturday, we took a picnic and headed off to Wales; we have been together six years on 20th June so were celebrating that too. We had a lovely time, the weather was sunny and warm, we took many photos of the Dell, in particular (the rhododendrons and azaleas were nearly over but the hydrangeas were just coming into bloom).
We arrived at the rose garden about 5pm. It was exceptional – the roses are in full bloom and the scent incredible. Then My Chap got down on one knee and asked me – I said YES!!!!
