|This is the Old Rectory- it doesn't lean it's my photography!|
It couldn't have been an easy process because the garden slopes quite steeply in places but it has the most wonderful atmosphere and though it looks artless, it has strongly designed bones supporting the abundant colourful planting.
|St Michael's Church which dates from 11th or early 12th century, adjoins the garden of the Rectory|
|Inside the little School House which once belonged to the Church. This is now a Garden Room with facilities for garden visitors to make a cup of tea and enjoy reading about the garden - it is a delight!|

are planted at the Olympic Park.

You can see from the green lushness in these pictures that we have had a tremendous amount of rain but at last the sun is shining so hopefully there will be more flowering and less foliage.
Do hope that these pictures give you a flavour of a wonderful English garden. I came away inspired and replete with scones and cream served at the lovely old kitchen table facing a very interesting china filled dresser. I would have loved to have taken a picture but I felt that it would have been an invasion of privacy.
