How lovely, and the weather stayed fine. They are all interesting in their own way. I love the pig too. The wisteria over that arch is fantastic. Thanks for sharing Gee.

lovely blog Gee, so many lovely ideas to, iv seen signs at villages near by about there open gardens but how do you know who is in it ? do they have signs or a list, im not sure, its a lovely idea to open their gardens for charity or maybe for collection for the village itself.

A lovely interesting day out Gee , some pretty gardens there and lots of good idea , I loved the way the old plants pot were used as a feature I might do that with mine plus I suspect small creatures might set up home in them , thanks for showing :o))

Enjoyed the tour very much:-))

What a huge variety of ideas. The topiary might have been soul less (could have done with a few flowers)but what a lot of work it must take keeping all that standing to attention with its hair brushed! I did like the rather posh bird house in the vicarage garden - and that chicken!
(And the plants of course...)

Thanks, everyone. Steragram, the posh birdhouse was a gift from the previous church when the Vicar left. The huge garden went on forever, swimming pool, ponds, a strange feature pool with black still water, empty veg garden, beautiful views across Romney Marsh but, to me, it still seemed empty. It takes all sorts, I suppose :)

Sanbaz, you get a list and a map before you start and when you pay. When we do it in our village its a very informal affair but this event was rather more organised and tickets were checked at some gates (not all) before they let you in. All monies go to charities.

Some lovely and some smart gardens Gee, but I must admit I enjoyed the photos of the tiny garden most. Whoever owns that one really loves and lives in that garden.

Some fantastic gardens..the one with the raised veg beds is incredibly orderly!!!
A lot of hard work has obviously been put in to all of them!!!

Lovely blog Gee and what lovely gardens, so many different ideas what a great day out, the little garden was really special - much loved.

Thanks for the tour Gee I find it fascinating how different each and every garden is.

I feel as if I have visited these gardens now, thanks Gee, although we open ours, we love going round other people's gardens, I find it fascinating, and as you say each one different, and it is a good way to raise money, we have a lot in Hampshire.

Lovely gardens gee..... nice to go out and see other peoples gardens isnt it..

12 Jun, 2013

 

It was a good day out, just wish it had been a bit warmer. The weather was kinder to you, DD2 :)

That was a lovely tour, Gee. I loved the little one too and the wisteria arch, the chicken and the dear little pig, amongst other things. We visited St. Michaels Open Gardens at the weekend and were a little luckier with the weather. We managed five of the six - we were under time constraints - and it was fascinating how varied they were, each having something different to offer. I came away filled with inspiration and happy memories and am hoping to visit the Crabtree Lane gardens near Burscough at the weekend. It's just such a lovely way to spend one's leisure time and meet lovely, like-minded people.

A lovely blog Gee, so many different gardens, which is where one can get lots of new ideas, I have to say I also liked the little one and the courtyard gardens, thankyou Gee for sharing with us....

12 Jun, 2013

 

I loved that little secret garden at the end too, my kind of space! How nice to nosey around the village it's a good way of getting ideas too!
