Hello everyone, I hope this finds you well. Are you returning back from a long bank holiday weekend, a summer vacation or perhaps just considering setting off on one once the children have returned to school ? We had a great escape weekend with our old friends in Tarporley. I love seeing what’s new in their garden, it’s always changing and developing.

These artichokes are wonderful colours, the bees seem to like them too.

Then there’s the smell of these sweet peas and the curves of my sweet hound !

We took a Sunday excursion to the hidden away and very charming Mount Pleasant Gardens and I thought I’d share the photos with you, so that you can gently stroll through the garden with me. I liked the huge conkers idea.

During September there’s a sculpture exhibition on, we were lucky to catch an early display of the delights on show.

These ladies looked very serene and relaxed amongst the foliage.

There’s an enchanting meadow field to wander around. We’d missed the best of the colour, but the blues that were left (above) and the grasses (below) still looked amazing.

The Japanese garden was just one of the many themes packed into this wonderful space.

      Many thanks Lizzie, it was a floral feast for certain. Thanks for your card, I had heard of Fortuny Fabrics but didn’t realise they were quite so expensive ! Ouch
