Thankful Thursday

Today we were thankful that the weather stayed dry while we visited the Garden of the Rose in St has been lightly drizzling with rain on and off most of the day, but we decided to brave it anyway as the gardens are only open for another week.

We had some lovely sandwiches and a piece of cake for lunch.

The flowers were as spectacular as ever

Trying to get Percy to pose and look at the camera is always an act!

Did he get his treat?  How could we possibly refuse that little face?

The water lilies looked wonderful

I managed to get a shot of three of the Koi in the pond.

This is was so striking.

Another very vibrant and pretty rose.

This one had a gorgeous scent.

A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.


  1. Roses and water lilies are so beautiful. It is over 40 years since I stayed in St Albans. I suspect I wouldn't recognise any of it now.

  2. Good thing you went in spite of the light drizzle. Lots to see and enjoy.


Thank you for visiting The Balancing Kiwi and leaving a comment.
