Renishaw Hall and Gardens 14th June.

12 comments


The last time we went to Renishaw Hall it was so cold that we didn’t walk around the gardens so today we thought it would be a nice change to go for a visit. It’s only 15 minutes away for us and as the forecast was for rain showers later today we went straight after breakfast. When we got there, there were only 2 cars and 1 coach parked up and no sign of anyone walking about. The only people we saw for the first 2 hours were the gardeners….It was lovely. I took so many photos I am in danger of boring you to death with them so I will try to be as brief as possible. I have included any labels they had for different plants but many of them didn’t have any. The first 100 yds were planted with lots of Hydrangeas, Azaleas Laburnums and Hostas. Here goes……

What a lovely place. Thank you for thinking of me! That meadow area does remind me of something, somewhere...

I agree - the pink tree is gorgeous.

I have some of the chocolate mint - you're absolutely right about the After Eights!

Hi Sheila, looks like a lovely place that you could spend quite a while looking round.
The name of the "lily of the valley tree" is; Oxydendrum arboreum, { so now I've named 1 for you, lol,} Derek.

Melchi......I instantly thought of you when we rounded a corner and saw the meadow. :o) I keep pinching the leaves of the mint to smell it and chewing a bit more. There will be no leaves left on the poor thing if I am not careful!
It is a lovely place Derek. You need the whole day to see it all. There is a nice cafe too in the courtyard. We missed the bluebells in the wooded area this year. They are a real sight to see and the scent is wonderful. ...I'm glad you knew what the tree was...Thanks very much, now we are even...lol. I would love to have one like this.

We really like it there Kidsgran and its a bonus having it so close. They also provide tours around the house, gallery and the vineyard with wine tasting. That is a bit pricey we feel but worth one look round. We shall be going again in July for the plant fair. That is really worth a visit.

Great gdns. I must visit one day. I see they are not Nat Trust. Are they privately owned? Also loved the Oxydendrum, thanks to Derek, we now know what it is. Also loved a lavender climber on the wall of the house. The sculptures looked interesting too. Thanks for sharing with us, Nice blog.

Thanks Sl, it's nice to visit early in the week because it's fairly quiet and you would think you were all alone amongst the gorgeous shrubs. I almost lost T when I sauntered off to look more closely at the bush that looked like it had a mass of pink lily of the valley flowers. He took one path and I another and we ended up calling to one another and meeting up by the Laburnum tunnel.

Lovely blog again Hb..expertly shown two photos together, takes me all day to download, let alone show them so professionally. Looks a lovely place to visit, will find out more about it and where, in case its not too far for us to visist for a day.:-)

I find it takes only a quarter of the time to do it on PowerPoint but the photos aren't always big enough to see properly. I expect there is a better way of using Pp but I will have to see if I can find a way. It does take an age to put photos on here in the usual way, 3 at a time. I get a bit frustrated sometimes. I hope you do get to visit and let me know when. :o)
