16th May

Our May garden trip was to Hidcote Manor gardens in Gloucestershire, these are one of the top gardens in the country. Covering an area of 10.5 acres the garden takes you on a journey through intimate formal areas revealing a different atmosphere or new vista at every turn. A good day was had by all along with some good weather.
