HiLuit !
I visited Bodnant some 10 years ago - the Lewisia wall was in flower then - you couldn't miss it.

Don't recall exactly where it was located in the garden ??  ??? ::)

By the way : super pictures Luit - I'm enjoying your report tremendously and making notes for future visits...  ;)

Before I forget it, any chance we see you in Utrecht next Saturday ??

Continuing took some longer because I was occupied with more important things,
but when I received and saw the new program for the next Discussion Weekend
I realized that I have to hurry to finish the last year’s trip pictures, before we start off for the next trip to Scotland this year.
And hopefully many of you will be cheered up by these pictures during this rather long cold and snowy winter?
Before leaving Wales we made a visit at Powys Castle.
I was there once in younger days and never forgot such impressive castle and gardens.

Tropaeolum                                      
Alyogyne huegelii

Salvia concolor

Sadly Luit died on 14th October 2016 - happily we can still enjoy his posts to the Forum

Luit,

I have really enjoyed your account of your trip to the UK - almost makes me feel homesick  :)
The photos of Powis Castle are quite wonderful. The (very unrock-gardenish) yew walls are stunning, as always!
The programme for the discussion weekend is tempting indeed ...
