I've just got back from a visit to South Wales, and while I was there made sure that some garden visiting was undertaken. First came a trip to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales. This was my third visit, but it's always improving, and I haven't been in (dare I say it) late summer. As it was raining when we arrived, we made straight for the glasshouse, which is the world's largest single-spanned glasshouse. Plants from Mediterranean climate zones are spectacularly displayed, with walkways taking you among the plantings.
|That's a lot of glass!|
|Leucadendron salignum 'Fireglow'|
|Aloe Dichotoma (Quiver Tree)|
By the time we had explored the glasshouse it had stopped raining and we made our way outside - which I'll save for the next post!!
