Village Open Gardens

10 comments


10 village gardens were open on Sunday and as the rain stayed away until early afternoon it was very enjoyable viewing them.


These are from the first, small cottage garden.


This was a much grander and larger garden, several acres I imagine.


The above shows the approach to The Old Vicarage and the wonderful tulip beds in front of the house.


This is the approach to a property called The Glasshouse. The garden is only about 6 years old and a bit stark for me. However the interior of the house is stunning, and because it’s all glass there was a great view to be had!


The colours in this border were lovely but I was a bit too far away.

How lovely . . . garden Open Days are inspirational, aren't they, and 10 sounds a good number to get round. Our town has 24 open in June which is a bit of a challenge!

Lovely gardens! Same feeling as you - 'stark' just doesn't do it for me, although I appreciate the work involved to keep it looking that way! I used to enjoy my own personal 'garden viewing' when I was still at work and had to park the car a mile away from the train station and walk. It was great seeing how the front gardens progressed through the seasons and through several years - I'm assuming no-one knew I was 'spying?' ;o)

I'm glad you enjoyed a look at some of the gardens. Next Sunday a lovely garden near the park is open. It once belonged to the writer, Beverly Nichols. I have seen it in the late summer, but never in the Spring.

I love looking at other people's gardens Sticki. There are always ideas to be had I think. At one I noticed a large plant pot with a big piece missing from one side. It was lying on its side, broken side up, and planted with pansies. Looked great. I would just have thrown it away.

i think i might just go and check the dates of the two near us;
another advantage, especially if you have a new garden, is to find out what is possible to grow in your area ie find out which things like that soil.
