This week the Lens Artists Photo Challenge theme is Wonder. P. A. Moed Creative Exploration In Words And Pictures invites us “to create a post that captures a moment, a feeling, a place, a person—which filled you with wonder.”
Last week, we were in Wales, and one of our days out involved a trip to Picton Castle, a 18th century stately home (that was a previously a medieval Castle) in Pembrokeshire. The highlight of the day was the magnificent walled gardens. It is definitely a place to fill you with wonder on the amazing world of plants. The shapes, colours, textures of the flowers, from hot red to spikey blues and greys.
A herb garden and succulents.
The garden has only three full time staff members looking after it (and the rest of the grounds). And some volunteers. They do an amazing job.
