Hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday (UK) weekend? I’m having a lovely one: the weather could be a bit sunnier but at least it’s dry.
I’ve spent most of the weekend in the garden and my garden project is nearly complete, I’ll put a before and after up later on.
May 1st and Breezy Knees Gardens in Warthill are open again for the season. Lots of pretty blossom on the trees and lots of flowers in bloom. I can’t wait to see how the gardens change throughout the year. A quick video of part of my visit. Let me know if you want to see more like this.
A big THANK YOU to all who have bought me a coffee (donated) to keep my page up and running, it is much appreciated. If you want to make a one of ‘coffee’ please see the link at the bottom of the page.
Hope you all had a great Easter & didn’t eat too much chocolate? The weather in North Yorkshire has been glorious and I’ve been very busy in the garden tidying up and getting rid of a rotten decking and transforming it into a sitting out area with plenty of plants (hopefully).
More and more flowers are starting to emerge with the plenty of warm April sunshine; Forget-me-knots, dandelions (good for the bees), tulips and Bluebells are started to appear.
Over the Easter holiday I visited the National trust property, Goddard’s. I will post some of the glorious pictures during this week, so watch out for them.
A few images from my camera phone from today. I visited National Trust property Goddard’s this afternoon. The garden looked stunning in their April colours and blossoms.
Goddard’s has five acres of garden rooms to walk through that used to be owned by the family on the outskirts of York city center. More pictures from my visit from my ‘big’ camera to follow.
The gardens are divided into rooms as a nod to the arts and crafts style inspiration. The idea behind the rooms was that of a continuation of the house extending beyond the walls and into the garden. The outdoor rooms, similarly to those in the house, each perform a separate function with hedges and shrubs providing the structure.
Running across the back of the house is certainly one of the most spectacular rooms of the garden, coming alive with Delphiniums, Sedums and brightly coloured Rudbeckia blooms in late summer.
As promised a few pictures from my walk around the Bar Walls in York (mainly of The Minster). It was a little bit damp and busy, I left my ‘big’ camera at home and opted to use my phone camera instead.
It’s been a sunny but windy weekend. Getting back into the garden is a great feeling but I’ve embarked on a sitting out project which has made be think that it wasn’t such a good idea! It’ll work out fine but I’m looking at the mess and thinking ‘oh dear!’
The trees are looking fab as Spring fever has well and truly got a hold, loving that the garden is suddenly springing into life & colour.
