Thanks for popping in.
It's always a treat to visit Guildford, especially the castle grounds which are beautifully kept and planted with a different colour scheme twice a year. It takes two weeks for the changeover as the old plants are removed and the beds carefully prepared for the new ones. What colour would it be this year?
The wildflowers around the keep were just beginning, later in the year this bank will be covered.
The Indian Bean Tree up on the hill was only just breaking into leaf but the view to the Cathedral in the distance was really clear over the rooftops.
The soft, ethereal colours of the blue and pink forget-me-nots with tulips interspersed and beds of wallflowers were quite a change from the vivid primary colours used in other displays.
Time for a cuppa and some toast in the Tea Terrace up in the Jellicoe Roof Garden of the House of Fraser.
