E had a few days holiday last week so we pre-booked tickets for Packwood House Gardens on Wednesday. It was amazingly quiet! I am coming to the conclusion now is a good time to visit those popular NT houses and gardens!
The house is open some days but not when we visited. Some of the gardens, such as the kitchen garden, are closed and there is a one way system in place. Although as usual several thoughtless individuals were ignoring it especially round the lake! It must be over 18 months since I was last at Packwood.
The Walled Garden
You couldn't walk along the raised terrace.
Very worrying considering it was a warm, sunny day was the complete absence of butterflies and later round the lake damsel and dragonflies. There were bees about but not as many as you would expect.
The Yew Garden which supposedly represents the Sermon on the Mount.
The orchards were full of buttercups.
Walk around the lake
I loved these dancing hares on sale.
It was a lovely walk round with E and I won't leave it so long before visiting again. Perhaps a trip to Baddesley Clinton next?
