I think it’s going to be Gardens, Gardens and more Gardens for the next few entries, or maybe I’ll be able to squeeze them into only a couple! We’ll see! I seem to have visited a few gardens and a couple of garden centres recently. We visited the first two gardens in East Lothian, on a wet wet day, but it was still enjoyable to wander round.
They were rather lovely!
The gardens were lovely too, a mixture of formal and semi-wild. I can’t remember the whole story but a 9-year old in times past was allowed to create her very own piece of garden, and as a result the rock garden was born!
Then through the gate I couldn’t resist the fabulous clematis. We were in the knot garden by then with paths wandering around, past the little summer house and past a couple more sculptures, this wonderful macaw
These are hellebores - below.
That’s the excordia again on the left, – another one.
Well, I was going to try and fit the other garden visit in, but it’s late and I need to get some sleep, so more from East Lothian next time.
Talk again soon.
