The National Gardens Schemes in Warninglid were very organized. Upon arrival and missing the parking lot, (mostly because I wasn’t expecting one) the gardens on tour were marked with yellow balloons and yellow signs. We walked into the first garden at the Wealden House and paid the fee of 5 pounds per person and received two maps. One, of all the gardens on the tour and their locations, and one of the Wealden House. The 5 pounds covered the entry fee into all eight gardens. What a bargain!!!

The Wealden House Garden is at the end of The Street and anchors the village. It comprises 4.5 acres of contrasting features, meandering pathways, natural woodlands, herbaceous borders and wild flowers, a koi carp pond and a vegetable garden. I loved the shade of pink on the house too! The owner and her son were there to greet us and answer any questions we had. Let’s go explore this garden!

The Entryway to your garden makes the very first impression of the garden. Walking up the smooth sloped driveway to the house, is an assortment of flowers and interesting light effects. At the top, near the house, is a focal point of greenery and flowers creating a beautiful driveway entrance.

The sweeping lawn had diverse, definitive borders leading to a vegetable garden and further afield the Woodland Garden.

Somehow I created a Monet with my camera! I focused on the lovely pink and green colors of the garden! See you in the next garden tomorrow!

    Another lovely garden, I feel my creative juices turning green. I tend to plant and forget, so I have a high death rate if I plant anything finicky. I love the Monet, too. I’m glad you included it. 🙂

    Christine if I had been trying to do that when taking a picture it would never have worked! It was a total fluke and I just loved it!
