Cilla’s Kentish Adventure Day One.

I was so excited to be visiting our lovely Hayley again and managed to find my way across St. Pancras to the high speed train where a nice young man with two young daughters assured me I was on the right train. When I alighted at the other end there was Hayley, charming the rail staff in to letting her on the platform, and beaming as we hugged. I was whisked off to Hole Park to visit the bluebell woods. We walked through part of the gardens first and there were some very colourful azaleas and rhododendruns which I photographed especially for Karen.

We followed the path through the bluebell woods, chattering away but stopping to take photographs. The woods looked beautiful and smelt heavenly. Wood chip paths made it easy to walk on too.

There was wild garlic, wood anemones, hellebores and epimediums too.

We left the wood and wandered round the garden which wasn’t a spring garden but had some nice features.

We finished the afternoon with a welcome cuppa in the tea rooms before going back to Hayley’s to be greeted by a beautiful boisterous Philip. We had a lovely family evening with delicious lasagne followed by a mouth watering strawberry and raspberry pavlova.

    Absolutely splendid park – anything with bluebell woods gets my vote, and the rhododendrons are good too. I lived in a rhododendron area, and always like to see them. Thank you Cilla, for sharing it with us.
