Croeso! Welcome to Lletty Cottage a lovely five star holiday cottage for two in Carmarthenshire

January 18 Botanic Garden of Wales and Antiques Fair January 18, 2012

Over the weekend we went to the Botanic Gardens and their Antique Fair. Maybe it was the bright, sunny frosty day or  the free entry that brought hordes of visitors to this beautiful gardens….we were lucky enough to sneak through the traffic jam easily and shnuck into a hidden parking space quickly and quietly before anyone saw it! 

The walk through the gardens was wonderful…. the drifts of snopwdrops were delightful  and the borders all look spruced up ready and tidy for the spring flowering that’s sure to come.

The antique fair was held inside the dome……an inspirational place to visit but enhanced by the treat of antiques on show!
 Jim bought a micrometer and I purchased two cushions made with Laura Ashley pink hyacinth material……so we were both happy!
 

Many stunning plants were in flower

 

On the way out we went into the Tropical House- which has really developed. Many varieties of exotic plants are on display....trouble is my glasses steam up with the heat and spray!

 
The Gardens  have free entry all through January and next weekend there is a Food Fair- again with free entry….sounds too good to miss!
