The Courts, Holt

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.
