In The Gardens, August 2017

The co-incidence of horticulturally-inclined guests and a strangely glorious sunny Bank Holiday weekend prompted a series of garden visits in and around Oxfordshire.

We spent time in the Harcourt Arboretum and at the Oxford Botanic Gardens and a bit further afield visited the National Trust gardens at Hidcote and the amazing Kiftsgate Court Gardens just next door.  If I wasn't enthusing about rewilding somewhere I could happily take over Kiftsgate (particularly the steep bit looking down to the swimming pool!)

And then we weren't out and about, we were mostly in the garden. :-)
