Yes we've all heard the stories: "Wales is rainy and gloomy". Nothing could be further from the truth. Once we dipped into the Welsh countryside the small group of travel writer's I was with were fascinated with the colourful buildings - especially at the tourist town and garden of Portmeirion. Built to promote his architectural business and to be a self-funded "village", both the town and home garden of Clough Williams-Ellis were showy and colourful.
Stunning white fall blooms (probably Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert') look fab in Portmeirion and in Clough Williams-Ellis' home garden Plas Brondanw.
