1 Herrings Cottage was the smallest garden on our tour, a triangular shaped garden in partial shade.

When we were early for the tour and decided to walk around the village Mr. A.B invited us into his garden, in a row of attached cottages, for an early look see. What a delight this gentleman was, showing what can be done with initiative and pluck on a budget, and in a small space. Working alone, he gives tender loving care to the plants and shrubs, but he also includes artwork to highlight his garden. I loved it. Now let’s take a walk in 1 Herrings Cottage! There is a reason Warninglid has won Best-Kept Village Competition three times!

There was a bit of whimsy, with treasured finds, to draw your eye to areas of the garden. Here a tree is a piece of art! Do you have a small garden?  Go UP!

Every garden deserves a quiet space, a spot to enjoy the garden and sip a bit of tea.

As the garden severely narrows at the back, completing the triangular space, every inch of the garden was made special!

A small glassed in porch, at the back of the cottage, was the perfect place to show more artwork.

    Liked the front door and entrance. Also, those tall blue flowers looked interesting, along with the variety presented in this small garden.
