Anchoring the end of Cuckfield Lane, the garden at Beeches was like taking a walk in a National Park. The owners have spent twenty years adding many shrubs and specialty trees to their two acre natural woodland garden. Linked ponds and pools of different levels were also created from a ditch on their property.  The look of this garden is very different from the others we have visited in Warninglid and that is what has made them all so special! Now following the path around another dutch design cottage let’s take a walk to the back! 

Here is a fabulous extension to their cottage! A glass house if I ever saw one!

There is a freshly mowed path for us to follow through the woods.

I loved the foxgloves and ferns that just popped up everywhere!

Don’t you just love this color of red? It just makes the woodlands pop!

And here, by the first pond, the plum color of that tree just draws your eye to that area!

This was the first of many ponds. So tranquil!

The owner sat by the edge of a pond, sipping his tea, and occasionally detailed what we were looking at and what he had done to create the ponds.

This owl won’t be drinking from the trough. He was sculpted from that tree!

And for the finale, the Charlie Brown Christmas tree! We enjoyed Beeches!  See you tomorrow in the garden!
