It was nice to see it at a different time of year and there was a lot of interesting things to see. Strikingly the many interesting views and vistas and historic details to enjoy as well as many spring plants and a lovely green house.
The little house in the wall has been turned into a children's play house quite delightful.
The greenhouse is such a delight and we bumped into a friend of Rachel's Tom who is the head Gardener. What a wonderful place to garden I was quite envious until I remembered that I haven't even time to keep my small garden in hand.
What a lovely place to visit! I especially love the greenhouse pics.ReplyDelete
Joanne you must have had a great time visiting there with so much to see. And it's nice that your daughter took you. So many beautiful flowers and the lavender clusters in picture number 17 look so soft.ReplyDelete
What a beautuful place! However, I would hate to have to trim those hedges and then clean up the cuttings!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the tour, Joanne! I like the old brick as much as the gardens!ReplyDelete
What a great post. That garden and greenhouse is really something.ReplyDelete
Those old walls make a fabulous background for a garden. The greenhouse is delightful, with the combination of brick, old tools and blooms. Did you buy any plants? (Do you have room to squeeze any more plants in?) :)ReplyDelete
Joanne, I have enjoyed the visit too! This is so English and pretty and sweet. The pictures look like what I visualise and day dream about while reading my favourite story books. Now, I'm going to make some tea and have some scones.ReplyDelete
What a pretty place. I love all the old tools and the brick building. So many pretty plants. I often think the same thing when I see big gardens, how much fun it would be to have so much space, but then think about how much work my small one is.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed following along on your tour. Lovely.ReplyDelete
What a special place to visit Joanne - your neck of the woods is really unchartered territory for me - must remedy that situation.ReplyDelete
A very nice place to visit. Very classy look and so wonderful to know that the garden has gone through the many decades and yet manage to retain its senses. What a beauty!ReplyDelete
Joanne, thank you so much for taking me on this trip with you. I really like seeing gardens before they get overgrown in the summer, I can really see the layout of them.ReplyDelete
This garden has been featured in The English Garden magazine for a number of months now in a recurring series with many photos. Although the photos in the magazine are pretty, your post gives a coherent sense of the place so much better than many months of magazine pics through the seasons. I feel like I know it now. And you make it look even more wonderful. Thanks so much. KimReplyDelete
