The weekend before my own garden opening I gave myself the afternoon off to visit my friend Louise’s garden which was open for the NGS.
The Old Rectory is a wonderful garden, continually developing and always an absolute delight. This visit was further enhanced by a spectacularly beautiful day. The meadow above was added a couple of years ago, a second meadow to this longer established one below.
Louise loves roses and was definitely the inspiration for the number I’ve now planted chez Duver Diary.
There are always lovely planting combinations and new varieties to admire.
Thanks Louise, it was just beautiful.
As my neighbour said, who visited for the first time – “Best £4 I’ve ever spent!”
