This is the front entry to Old Post Cottage. There is a chimney pot nestled in the fray!
The jumbled, carefree, masses of blooms are my favorite!
One of my favorite cottage gardens in Warninglid was the second garden we toured, Old Post. The garden of the oldest house (circa 1430) in The Street, creates a dramatic first impression of color, shape, and texture with a select choice of blooms and creative landscaping. There were so many small vignettes of activity and bursts of color to enjoy! Let’s look closely at Old Post!
The display of white flowers and soft variations of shades of green foliage beckons us to the entry of the garden. The long narrow garden plot is so inviting and every bit of space is used to its advantage! Look at the trough planter on the old sewing machine stand creating height and interest! Notice how white, white these plants are? Two paths to follow, which one should we take first?
Every cottage garden could use a box hedge, a stone wall and a touch of white! Or maybe a soft robins egg blue-green dividing wall!
The clematis trellis creates an entrance into another garden room.
Don’t forget the walls of your garden. Give us a reason to look up! Lovely!
Every spot in the garden was used! Another variety of chimney pot tucked in here and there! I should do a post on pots! I love them! Are there chimney pot collectors? Most of these pots seem to be made of clay. Here we see a black trellis to show off the plants! A touch of black is a must!
One can never have enough of a variety of containers! Love the look it creates! How about the distinction in the brick path using old and new! The brick edging continued throughout the garden creating sweeping curves.
A chimney pot to hold a pot!
This color combination of spikes and planter was stunning!
Pots with lots of COLOR! Another focal point in the garden! It certainly catches your eye!
What a great combination of plants and color here! So full and lush!
The wispy, silver green stems of the yarrow adds height and contrast, bringing out the white of the flower pots.
I Love, Love, Love the contrast of the lime and black in the garden!
One last bit of color in a very tall pot! This creative gardener used every inch of her garden to design a beautiful oasis!!! Old Post Garden is a must see! It was clearly one of my favorites! See you tomorrow in the garden! Enjoy!
