Thank you , Zoomer. I'd never heard of the Savill garden, so I've been looking it up. It's part of Windsor Great Park and it looks lovely. Here is a Google pic.
Thanks for posting a picture Busy-Lizzie. I must learn how to do that, it might be a while though as I've also lost the connector wire from the camera to the computer.
The garden is set in about 35acres. The picture is the summer gardens. The scent in the rose garden was amazing. There's a spring wood, summer wood, bog garden, dry garden, an autumn wood and winter beds. The list goes on...You could visit at any time of the year and see something of interest.
First time to Windsor too, certainly worth a full weekend visit.
Zoomer, does your computer have a little slot that takes a camera memory card? My laptop does. You put in the memory card and my laptop asks if I want to download the photos. I make a named file for them in "my pictures" first so it knows where to download them to.
Busy-Lizzie - there are seversal slots, my home computer is an old one and has a hard drive. Should really invest in a laptop for home use but use a laptop daily for work and have had problems with posture, bad back etc...
I've tried to load pics and will try again, but it's a tab bit late now and they aren't fabulous pictures which I took of Kew or Savill garden, I've only a digi camera.
I visited this garden this morning. We had had a bad storm overnight so it wasn't its best but is still lovely for this time of year
It is called the Picton Garden and is in the 2 for 1 book- www.autumnasters.co.uk
That's lovely, Mattie. So full of Michaelmas Daisies, I had a look at their gallery too.
How lovely - especially the third picture - looks like midsummer !!
What a nice garden, checked out where it is, not doable for me in a day but will go on my list of places to visit if ever in the the area. If a garden can look so nice in October it must be fabulous in summer
Picton is now on my list too.... thanks... and I am interested to find out more about Japanese saxifrages... oooh
Zoomer it is a late summer /autumn garden so is open from late august - the thing to do though is to wait till Michaelmas day (). We live close but it is the first time we have 'caught' the asters out.
You could do the autumn show and the garden - about the right time
I think the Picton Garden is the one that is to be featured on GW this week if anyone is interested
We went to Picton for my hubbys birthday treat on 10th October. It was gorgeous. Love this part of the country, the views from the malverns overlooking Wales is spectacular.
The top pic is a view from The Chase Pub, where we had our lunch.
Here are my 2 dogs on top of the Malverns (their reward for staying in the car whilst we went round the garden)
love it,(Malverns) the pub and never tire of the views
A few pics of my visit to Harewood House 18.10.13
and Wentworth Castle Garden 19.10.13
a couple of lovely days out
and my attempt at an arty shot (but dont show the guys on camera corner! )
Gina - was Picton the garden that was featured on Gardeners World programme recently?
Mrs Garden - love your shot of the trees with the tiny spot of light in the distance..
