Virginia Water

Hello

Thanks for popping in.

Blue sky, I know, amazing isn't it!  It's twice as marvellous here than in countries that have blue sky every day because they haven't got all the antici............pation. Ha ha!

The Royal Park of Virginia Water between Ascot and Windsor is a particular delight at this time of year when all the rhododendrons are flowering.



Bluebells too!




The Punch Bowl within the Valley Gardens is undergoing a 5 year restoration so it's not at its usual level of gorgeousness.



Here's the lake . . .


. . . and the Cascade (all man made).


Right, where's the café?



Only a few miles from here tomorrow at St Georges Chapel, Windsor Castle, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get married.  The sun will be shining.  It will be a splendid, colourful day full of pageantry.  Many Congratulations to the happy couple.





Cheerio

    1. The park is always a treat at this time of year. I loved all the foliage and white flowers in St Georges Chapel, they must have created a glorious perfume. Such a wonderful day. 😊

  3. The green spaces around Virginia Water, Ascot and Windsor look wonderful. I hope to come down to the area soon. I'll miss the bluebells, but the rhododendrons will still be flowering and gorgeous. The Royal wedding is something I'm looking forward to seeing on tv today. It'll be a lovely occasion. Have a great weekend!

    1. That will be fun for you especially as you know the area well. The wedding was just gorgeous. It would have been nice to go and be part of the atmosphere but I watched the tv too and thoroughly enjoyed it.
