On warm days from April onwards tea and home made cakes are served in the courtyard by the ladies of the local Womens Institute. Usually the place is full of tables and chairs and happy garden visitors enjoying refreshments so it’s hard to photograph the beautiful old buildings. On Sunday it was overcast and drizzly and most people stayed close to the house so it was the perfect opportunity for me to take a few pictures.
I love the way the garden owner and designer Arrabella Lennox-Boyd has matched the painted wooden planters with the doors of the old barns.
It’s lovely to admire the plants when visiting open gardens and I like to look at the details too because it’s those unique touches that add to the character of the garden.
I’m joining in with Norms Thursday Doors today. Why not pop across for a look at some interesting doors around the world?
Are you visiting any interesting gardens this month?
