I love open gardens! Every garden was different.
Not a bad wisteria but every one is compared to Rosemundy!
Classic manor gardens
Manor vegetable garden and below a bird scarer
A modern low maintenance garden
I think this was my favourite. At most six feet wide and just the length of the house. I had spotted it a few days earlier and admired it
This was a tiny narrow garden but the raised beds were full of interesting plants
I was very impressed by the peas and broad beans
After tea and delicious fruit cake that only members of the WI can bake, we set off to the last two gardens. Frampton Court was where Rosamund Clifford mistress of Henry II was born.
The leaning trees were intriguing
The last one was on our route home but we passed two homes with fantastic wisterias. The violas were blue and purple so the owner of this garden had chosen flower colour to complement the wisteria
So the last one was very attractive
Home made ice cream but the best place to eat it was in front of the fire in the summerhouse!
Look out for Cherry Moo ice cream. Choose the smallest pot as it is sooooo rich
