Spring greens

This morning saw our first visit this year to a nearby favourite garden: West Green.  We were fortunate with the weather, and were able to have our lunch outside in their walled garden.  At this time of year I love to see the greens and all the potential growth - and I also enjoy seeing the bones of the garden: the topiary and the structure of the trees.
I was intrigued by this delicate iris. 
Even the office and the toilets are delightfully decorated.


  1. Beautiful! Those fields of daffodils, the moss and lichen, the metal and the wicker - these stand out for me. Lovely weather too!

    After a glorious early spring, it is now cold, rainy and windy here, with the our magnolia and camellia blossoms shattering onto the ground.

    1. Marja_Leena, our weather is up and down too. We were lucky with today. It's garden work tomorrow, so I expect we'll have rain!

  3. Beautiful ... a must-visit garden and a new one to me!

  4. The National Trust has so many lovely gardens.
