Old Barn Cottage was next on our tour of the Warninglid gardens on the National Garden Schemes. This small garden had just experienced a re-do landscaping plan which raised garden beds and added a seating area. I loved the wood timbered garden room just off the back of the house. The gardens are filling up quickly with enthusiastic gardeners, so lets get in and see the Old Barn Cottage! I wonder was it really an old barn at one time? It does step back from the other cottages in the row. Love it!
The raised beds began in the front of the cottage and the look was carried through into the garden in the back. A beautiful garden starts at your front door!
A welcoming gate invites you in! The cow bell combines the garden and the Old Barn name!
Did you notice the rock display in the front of the cottage? The rock theme was continued throughout the garden! Just a few white rocks scattered here and there adds interest!
Here in the S-curve design of the garden the outdoor table and chair area was raised to a higher level and it really set off the garden.
What a mass of color and plants! Love the pink clematis!
This reminded me of a chalet! Perfect for the cooler weather!
Here the gardeners extended the fence by adding a trellis top to it, with another clematis, drawing your eye UP! Don’t forget the luscious hostas!
I have never seen such white, white colors in plants before! Is it the soil or the species of plant?
My favorite color of green in the garden, LIME!
Another touch of rocks, this time with a little hedgehog!
This was my favorite plant in this garden! It is a Salix Integra Nakura Nishiki! Or Dappled Willow. Oh, yes I knew that!!!! Are you kidding? I asked about it AND wrote it down!
The Dappled Willow UP CLOSE! Peach and white blooms and variated green leaves too!
Ready-made bouquets in the garden!
Just add a fern or two!
Rocks, rocks, save your rocks!
It’s so nice to talk to other gardeners about their garden!
See you tomorrow in another Warninglid garden! Enjoy!
