A Day At Hidcote Manor Garden

October 6, 2012

Deprived of taking photos at Prince Charles’s Highgrove,

I was itching to photograph a garden

Almost any garden would do!

But I decided to trek to Hidcote Manor Gardens, which has sat at the top of my must-see list for years

It is one of the best-known and most influential British gardens from the Arts and Crafts movement

Previous owner, Lawrence Johnston, was a friend to other innovative gardeners of his time

including Gertrude Jekyll and Vita Sackville-West



You can see the commonality in their hardy flower borders, white garden, and garden of rooms
All such a visual delight! Come on in…

Like a fairytale, just missing the damsel…

With lots of busy-bee gardeners working,
there were loads of wheelbarrows just begging to be photographed

Loving the girlie Japanese anemones

Spied this down the street…Can’t you just picture this handmade sign
being a Mother’s Day gift a few years ago?

Floral eye candy everywhere I looked

Yum!

Have you ever wanted to camp at a working dairy farm? Me neither 🙂 Let’s just put it out there that my idea of fun camping is a gentle cross-breeze through the house with a good snuggle by the (electric) fireplace. Then one of…
