In the afternoon of the first day of visiting gardens, We went to Mottisfont Abbey Rose Garden.

We walked along a river and through meadow with big trees to the walled garden, which houses the national collection of old fashioned rose designed by Graham Stuart Thomas, and at last we found the bench with flowering 'Constance Spry'. It was really glorious and we stood still for a few minutes.
