Wales 2

Welcome to Bodnant Gardens - Cick to see more info - Wales - near Conwy.
The most famous Laburnum Arch which is 55 metres long tunnel of pure yellow flower (Late May and Early June) the sight and smell is just wonderful.



Plenty of walks around the gardens and then walk down to the woodland area and follow the stream and cross over the bridges.




Just find the Meconopsis - Blue Himalayan Poppy in bloom too - if you want to photograph this Poppy, you just might have to wait a while to get just the right shot.



Follow the stream further and find the waterfall - do you like a waterfall to look like its movement or or you one that likes to see it sharp in focus.
All in all Bodnant Gardens is a certainly worth a visit - There's something to see whichever season you visit

Do you want to see more of Bodnant Gardens???..

By all means yes - I would very much like to see more of it! That arch was amazing. We have them here too but I have never seen an arch made of them before, probably because they are poisonous and therefore often taken down in gardens belonging to families with children.
