Weir Garden, Herefordshire

It was to be a three-sight day--four if you count the ASDA--we drove next a few miles back across Hereford to Weir Garden, another National Trust site, an early 20th century landscape garden, and walled garden, on the River Wye.
Thus
















Vicki stands for scale by one of the big trees
















Part of the largest flock of swans we've seen
















Thus
















But a scout returns from around the bend: nothing up-river
















And so they all turn back
















Along the river
















Bottom, right middle, stone remains of a Roman villa
















Fruit trees along the car park
















Grounds...beautiful Herefordshire

Wildflowers

In the walled garden, one of the better ones yet

In the green house...Venus Fly Traps for sale...
we would have bought one, but it's still two
months until P arrives

Pitcher plants, also very hard on flies

Chives, anyone?

And, a patch for the kiddies; neat place
