Recently I had a lovely day out with
friends visiting the
country gardens of
We managed to see six or seven gardens
and the best by far was
a garden of national significance.
It has been lovingly created over 21 years
with an artist's eye for colour and design.
A charming garden shed...
I love the title bestowed upon the
creator of this garden!
Some corrugated iron chooks
to keep Christine company!
...and some real ones too!
The woodland garden was so peaceful
I felt the stress of city life disappear
as I wandered along the pathways
enjoying the inspiring vistas.
Some pretty Alstromerias - I have to
have some of these in my new garden...
A favourite cranesbill of mine,
blue in the garden
has such a calming effect!
I'm pretty sure it's botanical name is
Geranium Pratense - Meadow Cranesbill.
Can someone enlighten me please?
