Mottisfont Abbey, Hampshire

A joint visit today, back to Mottisfont Abbey and on to the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Hampshire. This Mottisfont photo gallery taken on a rather damp 21st June last year but looking superb. April cold and then lots of rain held back the flowering of the mostly once-blooming rose collection (the main show was all over by the end of May in 2011 apparently). A superlative collection of 800+ Old Roses and the lasting collection of Graham Stuart Thomas. They now have a Winter Garden and the House always seems to have an interesting exhibition.

The Sir Harold Hillier Gardens will be new to me though I understand their well established Winter Garden is second to none.
