A few weekends ago we were in Wales visiting family - and you'll soon see the fabulous garden where this amazing bloom came from
but first it was a day out on Anglesey - starting at Moelfre
gazing over the straits to the Great Orme
then setting off round the headland for a walk . . .
the lovely original lifeboat station
Dic Evans, a very brave member of the lifeboat crew, born and bred in Moelfre
and some moving accounts of rescues
This is the swanky new lifeboat station and it's latest boat
old fishermen's cottages along the headland
We spotted porpoises in the sea just near this spot
and enjoyed wandering the grassy tracks
filled with butterflies and wildflowers
This is the bay where a famous shipwreck took place - the Royal Charter went down in 1859 and its a fascinating tale of wrecking and gold ingots! Read all about it here
And finally, back at the ranch and that stunning garden - "all my own work"!!
all that and a magnificent backdrop of the grandeur of the Carneddau too
A beautiful secret garden, great company and a fabulous weekend.
