Why just have a driveway, when you can have a garden in it?
Here it is, the house and garden of a woman’s dreams! From the moment we entered the drive and was directed to the meadow to park in, I couldn’t wait to see the gardens surrounding this beautiful home! For background musica there was a couple seated at a table playing old time favorites on old, old, crank record players.
What sound! So crisp and clear! Who knew! No Beats headphones here! Next was the antique Rolls Royce to inspect. Setting the mood we entered the garden!
North Hall is overflowing with a palette of soft colors and heady scent. The garden is planted abundantly with a variety of plants. Pathways along the house show off antique planters and old garden equipment creating interest in the multiple tiers of the garden. There are themed island beds, moated terraces, and roses tumbling over the walls. On the back lawn is an area with tables covered in vintage lace cloths and antique table covers, set up for tea and cake. Let’s wonder through this garden shall we? I’m sure this will be one of your favorites on the National Garden Schemes too. This garden is very much loved!
Stepping down, the multi-tiered brick paths along the brick walls allowed you to see plants up close at eye level.
The roses covered the house. Notice the contrast of the pinks and violets.
Four sides to the house gives one four different gardens!
A delightful seating area, was surrounded by a garden moat! What an inspirational way to add a water garden!
There were garden rooms created for relaxing and meeting up with fellow gardeners!
I loved the contrast of the black and lime colors in the garden!
Entering another “Garden Room.”
Rainfall water storage and composting in the garden! Nothing was overlooked!
Trees and flora were tagged! How thoughtful!
Add a spot or two!
Or maybe a bright PINK!
Can you believe the combination of lavender and blue? They were iridescent!
This is one garden I could visit over and over! I just loved it! Thank you, North Hall, for sharing your beauty with us!
