"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

Visit to the Gardens at Packwood House

I had a day-out with a friend last week and we decided to visit Packwood House. After lunch of a cheese sandwich and flapjack (my friend had the soup of the day) in the tea-room, we walked round the gardens which are particularly lovely.

Into the Carolean walled garden

The "Yellow" border is full of perennials using a colour combination of pink, yellow, scarlet, carmine and lavender.

The Rose Bays

The Sunken Garden

The Raised Terrace Walk where the borders are planted with "hot" colours.

Views towards the house and Yew Garden

The Kitchen Garden

The "Pizza Garden" planted by children from Dorridge Primary School

Many thanks to J for her company.
