Sunny Rosemoor! ;-)




It was definitely a Devon of two halves, today as we left a very cloudy south

and arrived in an extremely sunny north!

The last time we were here we joined the RHS for a year...

and so one has to take advantage of one's membership!!


The last time we were here we also had what only can be described

as a rather vile lunch...I reluctantly complained and received

two vouchers for two meals!!

Hence another trip! ;-)



I'd not been into this part of the garden, designed especially for children

to explore and discover, until today.

The Brash



A lovely area...encourage them young , is what I say!




Under the very blue sky, we wandered and enjoyed all things autumnal.

but it seemed like summer!





I love this time of year and I especially enjoyed our wander, today.

Few flowers now, but many interesting things had taken their place.


















The Dahlias really were past their best although I did spot this late comer...




And how about this for the last Rose of summer...



No more Roses but I love Rosemoor and can't wait

to visit again although Mr S has promised a trip

to RHS Wisley, before our membership expires ;-)

***

On the way home we stopped at a little village called..

Winkleigh.

Now then , you might just have heard that Winkleigh has recently

become very famous !







We had a wander..Mr S joked that it was 'closed' as it was so very quiet!






A great day out..! ;-)
