Three members visited Hidcote gardens last Thursday 4 th July. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine but not too hot.
The gardens were crammed with colour, not least with these incredible delphiniums, and the whole place looked amazing. All in all a most enjoyable day!
Finally a dryish day for a garden visit. 5 members made their way to these 12 Open Gardens. The day was warm but overcast, just right for viewing gardens.
We met at the Mill – a lovely garden with the stream running through it. Then made our way through most of the gardens, missing out on the Allotments.
We then worked along the street viewing gardens, passing the pub – The Three Alls! Jean and Anne returned to the village hall for tea, pausing to buy plants, while the others finished off the last gardens.
On Sunday 14th April a group of WI members visited this lovely garden. There were spring bulbs to see and blossom on the various fruit trees.
The old walled garden promised to be lovely with roses later in the year, however the newly planted donkey paddock was a bright fresh green – paths mown in meandering through recetnly planted trees and shrubs. The topiary horse looked very appropriate!
Tea and cakes supplied by the local scouts were delicious, despite a chill wind a good afternoon out!
