Aylesford Peace Garden

Hi folks,

yes at last I have returned after a bad bout of Sinusitus but I think I am on the mend so we went out today in the rain to get some pictures to do a blog for you all.
We, that is Sue and I did not go far from home only over the hill into Aylesford Priory on the outskirts of Maidstone and by the River Medway.
Going around the Priory we found this amazing "Peace Garden" tucked away to the side of the Priory.

It had a long path through the middle leading to some gates at the end. On the boarders were a variety of flowers to look at.

Positioned on some of the wooden posts on the way through were a large array of metal insects.

Still raining we came across this wet bench but could not sit down.


This glass Mosaic should really catch the sun but it did not play ball.

These tubs were a delight as they just stood one on another getting smaller the higher you got like tiers of a wedding cake.

More insects fixed to posts.

Roses are my favourite flower.

There you are, hopefully the rain will stop for the weekend and we can all get out in the sunshine.

Thanks for looking.

Best Regards, Mike
