Alphabe Thursday

U is for United Kingdom.
Last 5 days I was in United Kingdom for a garden trip with my garden club. We've seen beautiful gardens and amazing old houses.
We visited  Pashley Manor gardens. The rhododendrons were still in bloom; weather was warm and we had lunch in the garden....

In the private garden Bankton cottage we saw the motherswan with her 'child' walking in the garden......

There were also beautiful statues in this garden.

In Great Dixter, the garden of Christopher Lloyd(died in 2006), were many, many flowers.

In the private garden KIng John's Lodge were, like in the other gardens many rhododendrons in bloom. Even beside the roads were walls of rhododendrons.

And , of course, we visited Sissinghurst castle and gardens.
