Hole Park in Rolvenden is about an hour’s drive away from where we live and renowned for its glorious display of bluebells. Naturally on Easter Saturday this is where we headed. The daffodils were dying off, which is more the pity, but the Rhododendrons were coming along fine.
And some where in full bloom, whilst others were starting to bud.
The magnolias well they were breath-taking, with deep shades of cerise and pink.
Mind you we listened to the Sat-Nav and my God did it take us down some single track lane… so if you are heading for Hole Park and your Sat Nav says turn off at Green Lane – ignore it. Because if you don’t it will then take you down Stepneyford Lane which is just about wide enough for a car. Honestly we were praying that nothing came in the other direction because there was hardly anywhere to pull over.
Walking through the wooded area leads you to the bluebell fields. And as you walk along the paths of the wooded area, that lead you to the bluebell fields, you are surrounded by beautiful shrubs. Primarily rhododendrons and camellias. Which of course makes your stroll even more enjoyable as you marvel in the beauty full colours and varieties of shrubs. And I have to say Hole Park is one of those places that you can return to time and time again. Hopefully if the weather is fine this coming weekend we might revisit Great Dixter House and Gardens which has beautiful tulip displays.
Anyway I will leave you will a gallery of photographs we took at Hole Park on Easter Saturday. Until next time.. happy snapping.
