Old house in the Shires

Family life and adventures in an old house and garden in the English countryside..

My Glorious Gardens

My main hobby at the moment is gardening and anything to do with nature and the outdoors! My hubbie shares my passion especially since we have lived in the old house!

Before living here we lived in a typical new build house with a postage stamp sized garden. I still loved gardening but was frustrated by not being able to do as much as I would have liked. However, time in that house helped me to learn more about plants and what conditions they like to grow. I also had time to use Pinterest to work out how my dream garden would look! Now, I’m able to design, build and create my dream garden and it is very exciting!

In this series, we will be visiting various gardens and outdoor spaces. I will review and write about the ones that have inspired us or just simply been stunning. I hope you enjoy this series of posts!

Thanks for joining me in the old house garden and beyond.

    1. Yes! Those shows are great for looking around the country aren’t they! We are close to Bath (12 miles or so) which is a stunningly beautiful city. Where are you Jean? (I’ve just followed you on Twitter)
