Flowers all the way!

I promised you some further garden images taken in the Cotswolds - since then I have been to York, but that is for another time!

Here are some I took in a few famous gardens -

A sheltered sunken part of the garden at Kiftsgate

A recent modern garden at Kiftsgate

A pretty vista at Hidcote

It was rather difficult taking pictures at Hidcote as there were lots of visitors getting in the way!
 
A favourite view at Snowshill - one of my favourite gardens!
 
Snowshill again - just look at all the people!

I love this view of Snowshill, but other visitors got in the picture!
 
Sudley Castle - just look at that awful red sign!  The rambler rose is Shropshire Lass I think?

Sudley Castle again - outside the church where Queen Katherine Parr is buried - a white garden!

Now something from my garden - we are in the middle of a heatwave and the flowers are not lasting, so I'm picking them!  Here are some displayed in Emma Bridgewater's Hearts and Flowers patterned pots.



Hope you enjoyed?  I'm off to have a shower to try to cool down, I simply hate the heat, it's just not British!

Beautiful pictures that give me garden envy! I don't have that sort of space but love to pick elements that I can adapt. I really love that white border, and the soft planting that edges the paths in Hidcote and Snowshill gardens. Thank you so much for sharing these.
