This garden is quite near where I live and it was open today for just one day to the public, in aid of a local charity.
The borders are very cleverly designed with a good eye for colour and contrast, as with these purple ornamental onions and the fuchsia coloured pentstemon.
I love the fact that these ornamental onions keep their interest even after the flowers have faded- as the structure is so striking.
We had visited this garden two years ago, and - I noticed they had managed to invest quite a bit in extra ornamental onions which you could see in all kind of varieties.. here is a different variety with a different purple, teamed up with yellow Welsh poppies..
I thought it looked spectacular just as seed heads in green , in contrast to the purple Iris in this picture.
There is almost too much to see in this garden so I will split this up in two posts or you will get visual overload and garden fatigue!!
There are statues and urns everywhere to provide interesting focal points- like this urn in one of the gardens which is all in white with no other coloured plants- even the ornamental onions are white!
The borders are really what you expect of a classic English garden, full of perennials and with lovely colour schemes..
Who would not dream away in a garden like this!!
And some garden statues are just lovely..and in a lovely setting too..
What a fabulous setting !
Hope you ahve enjoyed the tour and till part two!
