Mottisfont Abbey
















We went to Mosttisfont Abbey near Romsey yesterday. We had to take M's bike in for fixing the oil leak, up to BMW in Guildford, so we borrowed a bike (a GS Adventurer, will take a pic before it goes back!), and rode down along to Winchester where we stopped for coffee (in Debenhams!) and then onto Mottisfont. It has a wonderful walled garden full of roses, so it's near enough at it's peak atm. It was really gorgeous, and the smell was lovely too. I really love the way NT properties are so neat and tidy, no rubbish about, lawn edges perfect, lawns manicured, and of course looking gorgeously green after all this rain!

Good pics Linda what is the red rose you show ? I presume the gold one is maybe Graham whatsisname-Thomas ?
