Mottisfont is one of those places my wife & I love to visit. Last year we went along to see the roses and felt we were a little too late to see them at their best so this time we visited early in June. We were not disappointed
Their new reception area is now completed.
The lawn looks immaculate as ever
As you walk in the walled garden the first of the roses come into view and the smell was heavenly
The roses and flowers in the waled beds were superb.
Even the little box hedges were neat.
The seat made a nice setting for a photo but I had to wait a while before it was empty.
Even getting a clear shot through the arches.
It was the roses we had come to see
and they looked perfect.
The flowerbeds looked neat and tidy if a little bear in places.
This wall really stood out with the roses growing along it
Again I was trying to get a photo with no people in it
I was lucky to photograph the seat through the arch with the roses growing over it and no one sat in it
Shrub roses with foxgloves
The borders packed with flowers
It did not matter which way you went the paths had people admiring the roses
Allium I learnt the name from my wife, I like the delicate flowers on them
While we were there looking at them an elderly gent leant over to my wife and asked what type of flower it was. She said" I think it's an Allium" the gent then turned round to his wife and said the lady says it's an Allium. I think he thought my wife was an expert on plants. He's right she knows the names I don't, I just plant them
Walking back along the path
Looking in roses and finding bees and looking at more pink roses.
We wandered out of the wall to look at the grounds
and view the surrounding area
Hope you enjoyed our visit to Mottisfont
