Outing to Mottisfont Abbey, Hampshire

The grey rainy day could not dampen spirits as members arrived at Mottisfont in Hampshire for our June outing .

Ancient yews and cedars graced the grounds on the walk to the walled gardens, glorious with Old Roses in full bloom. Heavenly scents emanated from flowers in red,pink,creams and white. Above were clematis clinging to the walls and while peonies, foxgloves, viola, alliums and geraniums added to the palette.
