Continuing our theme of looking at old things on our doorstep, I put the mirror to one-side and instead, we headed for Coton Manor and Gardens. The Manor House isn’t open to the public, but the Gardens are open Tuesday to Saturday.
Based on the number of cars in the car-park, it was clearly a popular destination! We took the short walk to the entrance and after parting with £7.50 each and receiving our free map, we headed for the main event – the Gardens!
First impressions were great ones! So much colour and so much variety too!
This is clearly a loved Garden! Every blade of grass looked like it had been manicured within a millimetre of its life!
…and if that wasn’t enough of an assault on the senses (in a good way!), there were also… Flamingos! (Yes, really!)
Three of them in total, totally at ease surrounded by us humans, all trying to grab a photograph!
Our final stop was their outdoor Garden Shop. The area sported a large range of healthy-looking plants and where the size of some of the greenery was a clear indication of the TLC from the gardening team!
All-in-all then, a very worthwhile visit! 😀
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
