Once a year I get my family to stay with me for an extended visit and we usually end up traveling up and down the country visiting fascinating places. Our first stop this year was Bodnant Garden, a National Trust property overlooking the Conwy Valley in North Wales. Even though I had been several times before I never managed to see the famous and the UK’s longest Laburnum Arch and this year this was about to change. It is just beautiful.
Bodnant Garden is a world-famous garden and noted for its botanical collections which it owes to its strong connection with the plant hunters and expeditions in the 19th and 20th century. Created by five generations of one family it offers spectacular views across Snowdonia and changes colours continuously thanks to its big variety of plant collections from all over the world.
Obviously there’s much more to see than I can show you here, so if you ever get a chance go and visit Bodnant Garden.
