It’s so lovely at Hidcote that you could visit every week and notice something new. In fact I know someone who once visited every month one year, so as to see the garden changing throughout the four seasons. She can give you the Latin and common names for most of the plants, describe where they used to stand in her last garden and where they are now planted in her new one.
As for me I just like to sniff the scented air, admire the colours and shapes and imagine myself wafting around the garden with a book under one arm and a craft bag hanging from the other. A bell to ring for an afternoon gin and tonic, cocktail or pot of tea would also be good.
Am off there at the end of this week.Yay! Will take my camera. My friend sells ice-cream there . . .
Why didn’t I think of having an ice cream?! Must revisit …
Sounds like a plan to me! Hidcote looks as gorgeous as ever.
It never looks anything but, does it? Lovely place.
Lovely grounds there. I like the first, macro shot. Do you know what are those white flowers in the third photo?
I can easily find out sometime, I will get back to you!
It’s a lovely group of white phlox.
Thanks for finding out.
I loved Hidcote so much!!!
Oh yes! I’d forgotten you’d been there x
