One of our favourite places to go is the Courts at Holt, a very lovely National Trust garden. It has a very nice tea room, but I confess Mark and I never can resist Sam’s Kitchen at the Glove Factory…awesome food and homemade still lemonade!
The borders are a riot of colour while the trees create a shady calm…
The ponds glisten with dragonflies among the waterlilies…
…and the gardens are a haven for bees! I hadn’t noticed until our visit the way bees squeeze between the petals of the irises.
Lots of birds too. Mark and I were concerned this one had been hurt, but it flew away quite happily…perhaps it was sunbathing.
As ever my trusty camera bag carrier waited patiently while I took yet more photos.
A lovely day.
