It's been quite a while since I went to a big stately home, with gardens! What I loved about Spetchley park was how parts of it had been left to the wilderness, and the kitchen garden incorporated vegetables and fruit planted alongside beautiful flowers. Though I loved the pathways filled with roses and the Rose lawn, just like the Red Queen's from Alice in Wonderland.
I took some photos, I hope I can share them with you as I don't know what most of them are!
Hi Sweet. So pleased that you had a wonderful day out. Thanks fo the great piccies. These large estate gardens do help us so much, and at the same time can make us think. Why can't I have a garden like that? Time. Money. Staff. Thanks Sweet for sharing your experience.
Great account of your visit and love the photos, especially the roses. I especially like the look of the first rose pic with all those buds. I wonder which rose it is. The lilac one is stunning too. Great pics. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for sharing the photos. Will now visit.
