The walled garden in the summer sunshine
Many of you will recall my story of living in the Head Gardeners Cottage in Littlebredy with my parents and how my Dad took on the walled garden see here. When we left it nature took over again for a few years before another garden called the Scented Garden was created with the walled garden filled with an amazing collection of flowers. Two years ago the garden was taken over by dedicated volunteers who have fallen in love with the garden and want it to survive. It is now open to the public on Wednesdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from Easter to the end of September and I wanted to share it with you as it still a very special place.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Welcome to my new follower Emmie and Emma , thanks as always for all your lovely comments.
The vine house is on the right of the picture and stretches down to that purple bush at the end, unfortunately it is very overgrown now.
The greenhouse half the way down is the hill is in the process of being restored.
|View from the bottom of the walled garden the River Bride flows through here on the left of the picture where the irises are growing.|
|Isn't the planting combination of colours magnificent?|

|To celebrate the Jubilee a display of garden tools used in the 1950's. I remember my parents using a mower like this!|
|Then a walk around the village. This is the church where we got married many years ago!|
|The lake below the church the setting is so beautiful and you can have a picnic or wander here .|
|There is also a beautiful waterfall which is nice and refreshing to stand close to on a hot day.|
