June 10th outing to Bodiam Castle & Great Dixter

Bodiam Castle June 10thWe had a perfect day to visit Bodiam Castle – scary spiral staircases but fantastic views from the top of the towers.  The food there was excellent.

A short coach ride away we visited Great Dixter.  The patches of wildflowers at the entrance to the house were stunning.  I have never seen so many spotted orchids at once. The gardens are huge and must need a good team to keep them in good order.  We saw some unusual plants and generally stunning displays.

Many thanks to Joan for the organisation – it was a great day out.Great Dixter June 10thWildflower meadow with spotted orchids
