A photo blog follows of my weekend visit to the Bishop’s Palace Gardens in Wells. I purchased one of their new ‘People’s Tickets’ so that I can visit throughout the year’s seasons. The Quiet Garden with its red Tulips is currently at its springtime best.
There were some brilliant orange Tulips in a nearby formal section of the garden too.
Camassia seem to be gaining in popularity in British gardens. They are native to North America. The flowers were just opening up in the Bishop’s Palace Gardens at the weekend. Their intense bluebell blue captured the light as they waved in the breeze.
A number of blossom trees also caught my eye.
The deep pink blossom of Cercis siliquastrum, the Judas tree, created a strong contrast against the blue sky.
I never tire of the view of Wells Cathedral through the trees and throughout the seasons in the Bishop’s Palace Gardens. No doubt, I will return again soon.
