A five-hour ride by coach brought me to the University of Birmingham that has a very beautiful garden house inside the campus. My guest house is located just beside that Winterbourne Garden House where I enjoyed a nice afternoon tea in its restaurant. They served two scorns which had nice flavor and sandwiches with crispy cucumbers. The garden has a great number of orangeries which have various rare species. The design of the garden itself is quite unique. You may find a Japanese-style bridge that looks one painted by Monet in the 19th century. Under the bridge I found a white water lily in a pond. Tomorrow I would come and visit here again with my camera and enjoy a half day for thiking some nice things on a seat of the hidden hut.
