A vegetable patch – Bermuda onions on the left.




I can identify the bee, but am not confident in naming the flower – answers on a postcard please.

The gardens are open every day and there is no charge.

They appear to have a Facebook page, but no website of their own, guess they employ gardeners and not computer geeks.  I did find the gardens listed on a US website, but am uncertain about their pictures – the gardens are just not this close to the sea.  Anyhow, definitely worth a visit.

    Lovely post and place. I think the ‘unidentified’ flower with bee is also a rose. I think the others are a shrimp flower, possibly a kangaroo paw, not sure of the pink and white ones, a purple hibiscus and an osteospermum. Gorgeous photos 🙂
