When we went to Abbotsbury swannery a few weeks ago we were given free tickets to the gardens a mile or so away. So on this visit to Dorset we decided to use our freebie.
The gardens contain lush woodland areas with deep shade and also very sunny areas. I came away with new ideas for our own garden.
I have a longing for an arch..............
..... though I am wondering whether to make a natural willow arch rather than a metal/wooden arch.
I am currently trying to sort out two old bits of border; rejuvenating them and taking out old woody stuff out.
All through the gardens there are pathways leading who knows where. Exciting.
Other parts look a bit more like a suburban back garden.
I love this bark.
I'd quite like a gunnera at the back of our gazebo.
Here is my garden gnome!!
I'd quite like a centre piece like this but they are pricey but I could do it with a tree, gravel and pots....
