London Diary –Blue Bells and Hampshire

April 23, 2019

Beautiful weather for Easter long weekend!

We went to Hampshire in search of Blue Bells and found it at Hinton Ampner, an enchanting village. Seas of Blue Bells was surely a phenomenal sight to behold! (Last four photos.)

Exbury garden in New Forest, a remarkable botanical garden with beautiful landscape belonging to a branch of the Rothschild family, is an explosion of vibrant colors with Japanese Maples, Camellias, Rhododendrons, Azaleas and more.

Boileau is a lovely little village in the New Forest where New Forest ponies mingle with the friendly neighbors and visitors alike.T The Vyne is a house filled with intriguing history hidden in its fireplaces, ceiling and wood panels since the Tudor time. Jane Austen visited when her older brother Rev James Austen was the local vicar of Sherborne St John. (First four photos).
