This is the house whose garden we stayed in. We didn't get to stay in there!
The detail on the front of the house. I imagine the initials of the first owner or the builder of the house.
This clematis was stunning, the colour of the flowers was amazing and there were masses of them as you can see.
There are lovely lawns with beds around the edges and lots of paths here and there too.
This Hypericum had loads of berries, black and red. I was very envious as ours never have berries!
There are some great views from the garden as it is higher than the surrounding houses and the road.
Some of the paths are used to mark the different levels as you can see here and then there are other areas with steps to take you up and down like these steps.
I think that this is the start of an orchard. The trees look quite young.
Another path that led to a large - but quite overgrown - pond. It was pretty, but I would give this area some attention. Perhaps that is something for the gardeners to attend to over the winter.
There were many lovely pink and blue plants, and the hydrangeas were especially lovely and were all different shades of blue.
Yet another path and wall between the shrubs. It would be a great garden for children to run around in and hide!
The sun was starting to go down as we finished our walk around and the sky looked lovely.
I am sure that the people in the balloon that you can see in the photo above enjoyed it!
It really was a lovely garden and one that I would love to own, and, if I am honest, am a little jealous of!
Right now I am having trouble commenting on some blogs. Either no comment box appears, or it disappears if I start to type in it. I have discovered after trying out various tips that I have read on others blogs, that if you click the back arrow in your internet browser - I use explorer - then the box comes up and you can comment with no problems. Just thought I would let you know in case you are having the same trouble!
Sorry about being a downer right now! I am trying to perk up. My friend told me today that I just have to bear with it and it will pass, and I know that it will, and she is right it will pass. So I hope that you will bear with me while I bear with this. I am trying to perk up! Really! Thank you all for your lovely comments and for cheering me along. You know that I appreciate it!
