The Exotic Garden in Norwich

Visited one of Norwich's best kept secrets (it has several) last Sunday, to see an exotic garden in the heart of the city about 3 minutes walk from the railway station. Will Giles' paradise garden contains a host of interesting, exotic, and very tropical plants and flowers in a setting nestled on a 50ft slope of land containing about an acre of peace and tranquility. I spent over an hour and was entranced by the atmosphere within, and of course I took many photographs, one of which is reproduced below. Expect more to be included in the botanical section of my photos over the coming weeks. The garden is open every Sunday afternoon from late June till early October. Refreshments are also available which can be consumed on a comfy seat within the sound of a waterfall. More information can be found here
