Most of us decided to opt for a quick cup of tea or coffee at The Greedy Goose before setting off for some serious photography.
The gardens had obviously suffered from earlier heavy spring rains and winds but still had plenty of marvellous roses and many other varieties of flowers and shrubs on show. As well as the formal areas of garden there were many areas of wild gardens and meadows to enjoy.
Everyone met up again for lunch and enjoyed some fantastic homemade, local produce.
Back to the photography and, after a long day, a final 'cuppa' before making our ways home.
