Open Gardens, the appreciation of other peoples hard work.

It was Wymondham’s Open Gardens last weekend, an annual event that I love. For a small fee which goes to charity you get a map and gain admission to lots of truly hidden gems. There were around thirty gardens included this year.

I’m not a great gardener, or even a good gardener, but I pride myself in being able to appreciate the ability in others.

I’m attracted to white flowers and the green veining on these is beautiful. I think that they’re Scabiors but feel free to correct me, I’m always open to being educated.

Silver Birch is another love of mine, and this group of three planted in a flower bed really glow despite the lack of sunshine.

The garden below is my favourite. The photograph above was taken from the bottom of the garden, combine that view with moss covered brick steps, meandering grass paths through billowing boarders, and all of it just the right side of left to it’s own devices and I’m smitten.

Mm mm, I wish I was there now.

Happy Gardening, be it your own patch or someone else’s, enjoy.

Shelley
