A little bit of Leamington

We dropped Mum off at Leamington Spa station, a stones throw from the canal, then I nipped into the Co op to pick up something for tea, I’ll only be a few minutes……

I discovered the Jephson Gardens. these Victorian Gardens where created in the mid 1800‘s to enhance the river Leam walk and named in honour of the Dr Henry Jephson, who promoted Leamington as a spa town.

Not only did it have a traditional formal garden three was a hot house full of tropical beauties. Passion flowers

And pink powder puff flowers -yes that’s what they’re actually known as

And a big fountain in the middle of a lake

All very pretty and I have a feeling we’ll be back next weekend.
