Seasonal Spotlight on Aberglasney (1): June 2009

June at Aberglasney, the garden lost in time
and home of the poet, John Dyer,
Carmarthenshire, Wales, UK

'Hear the thrush, while all is still,
Within the groves of Grongar Hill'
John Dyer (d.1757)

I hope to post occasional seasonal photographs of these views of the garden:
  • The House at Aberglasney (partly open to the public, often with exhibitions)
  • The view from Aberglasney to Grongar Hill (the view from my favourite seat)
  • The Upper Walled Garden (with Celtic design flowerbeds)
  • The stream in Pigeon House Wood
  • The Cloister Garden
  • The stream in Bishop Rudd's Walk
Invertebrate Life
  • Insect life on the edge of the pond in The Pool Garden (we have seen newts and an eel here: my photo of an eel at Aberglasney is here)
Bird life:
Garden Plants
  • Poppy
  • Old fashioned rose (ah, the scent!)
  • Iris
Wild flowers
  • Orange Hawksbit (aka Fox and Cubs)
  • Ox-eye Daisy
  • Ragged Robin
  • Buttercup
... and finally...
And finally, for Aberglasney's literary links (Wordsworth, Gillian Clarke...), you may like to click here. I hope you have enjoyed your virtual visit to the garden.
