The Winter Garden is often ignored and I understand as it often wet, dark and cold at this time of year and the last thing you want to do is get into the garden to do jobs! However, getting outside in the winter is important for our health; it gives us a boost and keeps us fit. There are lots of jobs you can be getting on with in the garden in the Winter.
It’s a quick round-up today of 6 things in my garden. Storm Brian is about to hit this afternoon but I took these this morning in the old house garden.
Stourhead is a National Trust property and garden that we have visited on numerous occasions. As National Trust members we thought we would visit in the Autumn as the trees are looking glorious at the moment. I love that with our family membership, we can explore an area for a day or for a quick dog walk.
This weekend we decided to visit Westonbirt Arboretum as the weather was so good and it is the perfect time to go to see the Autumn colours.
Lacock Abbey is a National Trust property that started life as a nunnery and was last lived in by the Talbot family. It is also the birthplace of photography. Many films have been filmed here including Harry Potter, The other Boleyn girl and Wolf Hall.
Snails and slugs have eaten my Delphiniums again! They have also munched some of my vegetables and it’s quite a problem!
Ive been so busy that I haven’t written the weekly round up of the old house garden! May is such a busy month in the english garden and the old house garden is no exception! It has grown so much since my last post that I am sure you will really see the difference.
Anyway, here are the photos!
