Gresgarth Doors

Gresgarth Garden in Lancashire is open to the public from February to November just one day each month. Sunday 12th March was Hellebore Day and visitors were offered Hot Chocolate on the terrace.

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?

  1. Gillian the Gresgarth Garden is very beautiful and its lovely old buildings. I love the wooden planters. And the kindness with the visitors serving a small snack is to be appreciated. The photos are beautiful and they inspire a lot. Thanks for the walk in the Garden. Greetings from Margarita.

  2. Great addition to the Doors fun! You spotted such a simple, but effective design element in the garden with those matching doors. The colour is a nice choice, too; a bit of added colour, without being too much. What a lovely public garden. Thanks for taking me along.
