More Gallivanting

… and some of you might recognise this place:

… Kate’s Barn House garden 🙂

 More of that and other gardens when we are back home with ready internet access again but in the meantime here is a fleeting glimpse of … Wyndcliffe Court Sculpture Garden:

… the Veddw House Garden of Anne Wareham (‘The Bad Tempered Gardener’, etc) and Charles Hawes:

… and an intriguing NGS garden with lots of quirky artefacts and a huge number of hosta – and clock golf which the Golfer failed miserably at!

  1. Gorgeous gardens. Unfortunately had to rehome my Hostas here as too many snails.

      Sadly I have no idea how this particular gardener kept his so pristine – we were too busy taking about all his artefacts! Strangely though, my own are largely intact this year too…

  2. Cathy says:

    Have fun, and look forward to seeing more of your travels. 🙂

  3. It was lovely to meet you and The Golfer yesterday, glad to see you enjoyed the afternoon. What an incredible, hole-free hosta collection!

    • Cathy says:

      Likewise Kate – I shall be writing more about our visits later in the week when I have caught up with IAVOM 🙂

    We must have missed you at the NGS garden. I also wondered about how they managed to keep their hostas hole free.

    • Cathy says:

      Oh Brian – you visited too?! How ironic – it was about 4.00 when we got there. What a shame to have missed each other 😦

  5. Anna says:

    Oh you must have had fun. What incredibly pristine hostas! I am unable to see as much as a single nibble. Looking forward to hearing more about your trip Cathy.

    • Cathy says:

      Thanks Anna – as always we crammed a lot on so will do a more informative round up when I have longer to draw breath (and now I have reliable internet access again!). With the hostas, whatever is done to keep them hole free must take considerable time and effort as they were so many of them, both in those pots and around the garden

    Love traveling on your coattails.

  7. Pauline says:

    Love the tree roots that the hostas are on, they make lovely sculptures.

    Two gardens I’d love to see.. Veddw and Barn House. Sounds like a marvellous gallivant!

    • Cathy says:

      Yes, it has been really enjoyable – and there’s more gallivanting that I haven’t mentioned yet. It’s so easy to find out what’s out there these days, and the only difficulty is then scheduling opening days and times

  9. My goodness Cathy you are getting to see loads and we are getting to see them too. Perfect. I love the look of the pinecone, who is that by? I hope you will share more pictures when you get a minute!!!

    Gorgeous pictures!

  11. [J+D] What do we miss most about mainland life? Visting Gardens! You know, Gardens, not just gardens. You know what we mean?
