The English Garden Tour: Garden 5, Wealden House, Warninglid, Sussex
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!
I loved the colors and mixture of plants here!
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.
Neat and tidy rules the garden!
Layered areas of varied plants and bushes add interest to the storage areas of Wealden House.
I loved the pink color and gingerbread trim on the Wealden House!
Sometimes you find blooms in unexpected spots! Why not?
The sweeping lawn had diverse, definitive borders leading to a vegetable garden and further afield the Woodland Garden.
The treehouse is the perfect spot to hideout and dream!
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!

Yes, you did create your own Monet. Love it! 🙂 Such a gorgeous garden. The Woodland garden with the tree house looks so inviting.
I had to add that because I thought about deleting it and just couldn’t do it!
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!
It’s amazing how many interesting gardens you were able to see. It looks like your planning was very well done and enabled you to maximize your trip.
We pack a lot in! I don’t have any trouble sleeping at night!
