A stroll, a garden at Old Sleningford, a sunny day……

… at last.  I wrote about the Open Gardens day at Old Sleningford this time last year.  But if an open day’s worth visiting twice, it’s worth blogging about twice too.

Let’s just have a picture story this time.  It was an utterly gorgeous, sunny and hot day, and about time too.  I chose to walk there, Malcolm favoured his bike.  Here’s the walk, here’s the garden.  And as last year, I neglected to take pictures of the tea and cakes.  Next year?

The walk to Sleningford. Shadows on the road.

Still on the road to Sleningford.

Nearly there.
Nearly there….

And finally …. there.

This pig is called Dennis Healey. Hands up if you understand the allusion.

And here, as last year, are a few shots of the edible forest garden.

 

And finally …. Old Sleningford Hall
