My photos do not do full justice to the pathways through but it is well worth a visit if you are in travelling distance of the garden in Surrey UK.
The maize is planted on the site that used to have the old greenhouses which were taken down after the New Millenium Glasshouse was opened.
Oh I love mazes though never on my own, just the thought of 'The Shinning' - scary. A few years ago a fab one was planted in Castlewellan Forest Park, Castlewellan, Northern Ireland. It's a Peace Maze to celebrate the end of the troubles...Anyway Andrew and I just walked into it and we didn't make 1 single wrong turn, we just walked in and out - creepy!!!!ReplyDelete
I have never been into maize maze before, but I can imagine how lovely and exiting the pathways would be......ReplyDelete
Hi Joanne, we have several of those corn maizes in my area, including one at the farmer's market newly opened. It does seem a little horro movieish, at night anyway. The grandkids might enjoy it though. The farmer's here use it as a Hallowe'en thing, with a pumpkin patch included. A good way to make some extra money.ReplyDelete
Amaizing :) Would that it were nearer !ReplyDelete
We usually visit a maze or two in the fall. They are so fun and I can imagine they are a lot of work to plan out.ReplyDelete
These mazes are so much fun. Did you navigate your way through it OK?ReplyDelete
there is one close to where I live and they take bus fulls of school kids out to it and Like Frances said Halloween they make it extra special. Every year they make it different!
here's a link to it. http://www.prairiegardens.org/SharedPages/CornMaze/tabid/67/Default.aspx
Hi Joanne... I am passing you the Meme Award. If you already have it, you can always have another one, why not..... haha. Check out my latest post! ~ bangchik.ReplyDelete
That looks like a lot of fun.ReplyDelete
I am going to have to take my inner child to the corn maze this year! She has seen this fun post and is clamoring for an outing! gailReplyDelete
I feel a right old fogey for saying this, but the great benefit of the maize maze to me was that it helped to coral some of the noisier youngsters into one easily avoided area! I hate children I don't know - rather the way some nervous souls are with dogs....ReplyDelete
Sorry I didn't manage to reply to you all but thank you for your interesting comments. I had not realised what a common phenomena these Maize's are in USA and Canada.ReplyDelete
Emily I have to say I am inclined to agree with you. Of course it is not the childrens fault that they have parents who can't be bothered to control them.
On that visit to Wisley I was amazed at the number of grisley small children being dragged around in sweltering sun, do parents have no brains these days.
