Having said that the weather on the Friday was awful, it was in parts. Fortunately we had decided to head to the north coast, and ended up at Bodnant Gardens – the weather had cleared up as we passed (we were originally headed for Penryn Castle because some of it was indoors) so we decided to go in. And what a good decision that was – one of the best gardens I’ve been to. Thoroughly recommended.
It’s made up of several levels. At the top, there’s a fairly traditional formal flower garden

With more butterflies!
Below that, there’s a rose garden, then there’s this lily pond

And below that, there’s *another* lily pond


And then below all that, there’s a path through the woods, with a stream.
And a particularly photogenic waterfall.
