Pembrokeshire coastal villages

Believe it or not, I've never been to Wales.  Went to Pembrokeshire coast over last few days. I must go again! And again. I loved it!  Gardens in that part of Wales are occasional, fighting the weather, I suppose. Hydrangeas (macrophylla types) magnificent as they're fading. But I question the need - the scenery and the hills and the sea . . . .!

    I love South Wales and The Gower image

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • imageColby Woodland Gardens (managed by National Trust). Well worth a visit at almost any time of year - Oct half-term break beckons - but don't forget February ht is also good as the gardens are very sheltered & come into bloom very early on in Spring!!

    I am not at all surprised you loved it H-C. I may be biased, as Wales is my home country, but whether you visit the coast, the mountains, forests or castles - the scenery is spectacular.

    My favourites include: Tenby, Brecon Beacons, Cwmcarn Forest and my garden image

    My garden and I live in South Wales.

  • Enjoyed?  I'm still buzzing with it!  My surname is Jeffs.  We came from Wales somewhere, landed gentry apparently!  I presume that means we had a piece of rugged hillside, a few rocks and a tame crow!


    PS. I did see choughs at Strumble Head!
