Bodnant National Trust Gardens Wales in Pictures

The National Trust Garden Bodnant in Wales

Quite possible my favorite National Trust gardens  in the UK. Below is a small picture diary essay.

Founded in 1874 then gardens were developed by five generations of one family, it was gifted to the care of the National Trust in 1949. The garden spans 80 acres of hillside and includes formal Italianate Terraces, informal Shrub Borders stocked with plants from around the world. For anyone with any passion for gardens and plants this is at the very least a bucket-list must see!!

      Hi and thank you for the comments. These pictures were taken using one of the early Olympus digital cameras. It is 8 megapixels memory which was very good at the time i bought it, but of course now most phones have more than that never mind cameras.
