Bodnant Gardens are run by the National Trust and are situated above the Conwy valley looking towards the towards the Carneddau mountains.  The gardens cover over 80 acres.
The sun was shining, the laburnum arch was in full bloom (it’s the longest in the UK and is only in flower for a couple of weeks).
The rhododendrons were glorious but it was the wisteria, clematis and roses, just coming into bloom, that really caught my eye on the Italian terrace at the front of the house.
A day here wandering around the garden with my Chap especially the forest walks of the Dell  has helped lift my soul…
We bought some more plants too.
I’ll write more soon about Bodnant but if you’re in the area do visit – the roses will be out very soon.

Carpe Diem
