Now I’m not a “visiting gardens man” normally, but this spring I had the opportunity of visiting three excellent gardens near Leominster and Presteigne in The Marches. Here are some of the images I took which I’m particularly happy with.
This is near the cafe (a tithe barn) at Stockton Bury, an apple orchard.
An old dovecote at Stockton Bury.
I’m rather taken by this water feature at Stockton Bury – great idea, and so simple!
Cowslips and bluebells at Stockton Bury.
Immediately we got into the garden at Bryan’s Ground, I saw this shot and knew I had to do it justice.
There’s loads of quirky architectural elements in the garden, but this one’s rather special.
Beside the tea counter, there’s this collection – it could be our attic! And I just love this pot with the frog beside it. Lovely gardens.
