Last week Mr C and I had a lovely day out to Hidcote Manor Gardens in the Cotswolds. We have been a number of times before but love to visit at different times of the year. The gardens are always stunningly beautiful whenever you visit, even in pouring rain !
When you go in you pass through this cosy sitting room with faded floral armchairs, old books and this beautiful painting on the wall.
The view from the desk window is wonderful.
The gardens are divided in to 'rooms' with different themes. There are lovely little places to rest and take cover from the rain or sun all around the gardens.
This is the beautiful red border full of red and orange tulips.
An artist was at work renovating the lovely wall paintings in this summerhouse.
There were gorgeous tulips everywhere along with lilacs,magnolias and peonies.
The shades of pink, lilac and the blue merged beautifully. Bluebells were everywhere along with forget-me-nots and coiled ferns.
Every way you turn there is a beautiful view. The white garden was restful and cool.
There were a number of stunning old wisterias that scented the air all around them. Every time I visit I am reminded of my lovely grandad as this was his favourite place to visit. Hopefully we won't leave it too long to go back as I would love to see the rose garden in full bloom.
