A Beautiful Spring Garden
This beautiful garden was open to the public last week end in aid of the local church. The gardens consist of about 18 acres which are designed to be at their best during the spring when the rhododendrons and azaleas are in full bloom.
This pathway meanders amongst shrubs and bushes bursting with May flowers and high fragrance till you come across the lawn a lush green drenched by the English rain!
Here also we have an example of how a wisteria should look, draped all over the surrounding trees and bushes dripping with graceful flowers.
A newly planted arboretum marks family birthdays and anniversaries with carefully selected unusual trees.
In the Green house there is a magnificent statue carved from a single piece of oak which was sourced from the garden when it blew down in full leaf missing the house, conservatory and other buildings.
Created by a local craftsman it represents a Celtic Maiden if you look carefully you can see the Celtic symbols around the base.
My final picture is this beautiful clematis growing in the vegetable garden.
We enjoyed a cream tea in the pool room sheltering again from another shower
I hope you enjoyed wandering around this garden with me and you didn’t get too wet!
