Playing Away

When you are preparing to open your own garden it can be hard to find or make the time to visit any other gardens, especially as June is invariably the peak month for garden openings. However, we managed it last Sunday and hope to visit another this coming weekend. This one, on the edge of Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty made up of deciduous woodland and heathland, borrowed from this landscape and had a ‘woodland edge’ feel to it. The owners also incorporated a range of artefacts within the garden and overall there were a number of similarities with parts of our own.

We don’t, however, have any caves in our garden…

    How delightful, looks like an enchanted woodland. Love the bits and pieces around and those immaculate hostas! I am wondering if my hosta might do better in the ground where it could make stronger roots. Only problem is whether I can ever get it out of its pot!

  2. Good for you! I haven’t visited gardens in a while (even public ones), and I really miss it. I need to get my act together now that I, and a large portion of my community, are vaccinated. I like the little tucked away groupings of plants here.

    Lovely, and now we all want a cave.

  4. Lol … I was just thinking that I bet you could make one (small cave) if you put your mind to it!

  5. Beautiful! I love a wild little garden. The cave is pretty cool.

    Oh that looks like a most intriguing garden Cathy and glad to hear that you’re fitting in some time to play in a busy month for you. I love the trio of the rusty chickens lurking in the undergrowth and the leaping pixie (if that it what he is) in among those fabulous hostas. A cave is another dimension all together 😂 We’re off visiting a local NGS garden this weekend and are looking forward to it.
