Still A Bad Blogger!

Don't know if it's the previous long break from blogging, the extremely hot weather we're having or I'm just getting lazy (!) but it's been difficult to get going again with regular postings.

However - as it's been some time since I showed you some of this beautiful part of France, I thought you might enjoy looking at one of the lovely gardens we've been visiting in recent weeks, so come with me to the beautiful Jardins du Botrain.

Just 45 minutes from home, I'm ashamed to admit that this amazing 18th century manor house and its gardens have been hiding away from us all the years we've been in Brittany !

The brochure reads ' come and discover the manor house

 its 18thC apiary

Japanese garden

complete with fish !


and Bonsai

Time to take tea ?

I think one of these visitors has his eye on that big fish !

Lots more photos  of the rest of the gardens, described as 'rooms of greenery, majestic mixed borders, rosebushes, maples and pond.......' and I promise ithey won't disappoint, but as this post is getting a bit photo heavy, I'll leave those until later in the week.
