Capel Manor Gardens - Part 3 (and final) - Trial Grounds and Animals

We are nearing the end of my tour of Capel Manor Gardens.   The trial grounds were interesting and it would be good to know their conclusions. 
The animals I loved!   You will see why when you see the photo's.  There were more small mammals and birds, but not easy to photograph and lots of people surrounding them, so I gave them a miss with the camera.

The Meercats!    Who does not love them?

Another Glasshouse housing cacti




A Glasshouse with Scented Pelargoniums - a bit overgrown sadly


This is "Paul Campel" a very old variety and one that used to be planted in the beds outside
Buckingham Palace. This looks like a very old plant grown against the glasshouse wall.
