Hidcote Manor Garden

 

One of the most delightful gardens in England, created this century by the great horticulturist Major Lawrence Johnston. A series of small gardens within the whole, separated by walls and hedges of different species, famous for rare shrubs, trees, herbaceous borders, old roses and interesting plant species.

In general it may be summed up as a garden on architectural lines, deriving from Italy and France, with lavish and varied planting. In detail, it is a series of gardens each with definite colour schemes. The purpose is a fusion of scale and contrast complete with a blending of colour through the seasons.

I have but a few pictures here showing how the gardens looked, with one of the pictures having three of our group by the steps! I have a thing about benches and found plenty of those to photograph! Many more in my photo album!
