Title: Blue Bloom
Location: RHS Hyde Hall, Rettenden
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM

Although not strictly part of my “Coast & Cornwall” trip, I took the opportunity to stop off in picturesque Wells, in Somerset, on my way back home, via a stop in Wiltshire to visit friends. I’d seen the Cathedral on a previous trip, but I had never visited the Bishop’s Palace Gardens, which are well worth a visit:
You can wander around the grounds, ruins and building which still stand, including the peaceful Chapel:
There is also a restaurant serving lunches and teas, but on this occasion, their patio was unoccupied:
There are also plenty of flowers to attract the attention, here’s one I can’t identify, but I loved the deep pink colours:
