Bath Botanical Gardens

We spent the day on the outskirts of Bath and visited the Victoria Botanical Gardens and Park. We had lunch at a very local pub where we ate a Sunday Roast with lots of simply cooked, but gorgeous vegetables. We were definitely the only tourists, which is always nice.

View from the north of the city, looking down towards the center.

Another fragrant daphnae, covered in blossoms and bees. I climbed into the garden in order to get a little closer. All the air around was full of its fragrance.

Cherry blossoms, looking across the park.

Under the eaves of the giant beech tree.

We think a Giant beech(?) tree.


Photinia serratifolia, beautiful shrubs and trees that have glossy red leaves as new growth and are just coming into bloom right now.

Garrya elliptica 'James Roof'
Behind is a border of heathers and heaths in full bloom.
