What’s that, another set of photos from Abbey House Gardens? Well, yes – but this visit was a little different. SWMBO came along for the first time, and it was also the first time I’ve visited with my kit on – this wasn’t one of their clothes optional days.

I’ve not been this early in the year before, and unfortunately the masses of tulips that were out over Easter were past their best – we weren’t able to get there when they were in their prime. However the rhododendrons were out and the gardens were a lot quieter than on the naturist days – which made taking photos a lot easier! I need to visit when the Laburnum arch is in flower, preferably with someone to pose in it.
