Come On a Garden Walk With Me, Around My Valley
CLICK ON THE PICTURES FOR A MUCH LARGER VIEW
On Saturday afternoon we set off on The Garden Walk around our area. Truth be told Harvey and I set off at our friend's garden and missed out a few. Annie (top right) and Gavin (bottom left) have slaved for weeks to get their garden up to scratch.
We weren't disappointed when we arrived. I have spent many a happy hour sipping rose wine on that swing and many a shocking moment falling off it.
It's a four sided garden and wouldn't you put a table and chairs right there to take in that view? Excuse the stack of stones but they are building a conservatory right there.
Annie is wacky to say the least and her garage design shows her wackiness to great effect.
My favourite part of their garden is the huge sycamore tree. Big enough to have it's own garden at the base.
Wellies full of sunflowers and an ingenious way of disguising a cable, keeping the electricity pole erect. Well done you two you made us all smile.
The walk from Annie and Gavin's is a sight to behold.
Fantastic views and take a look what we found behind those trees.
Wadge Head is owned by 2 retired doctors and they haven't even got a gardener. The house and the views are to die for.
A close up of them both. That's my reflection in the window which I captured to prove that I was really there.
Doreen, Annie and Brenda (my personal garden advisor, her garden is amazing) needed to take a well earned rest, this is one huge garden with so many places to sit and take in the views.
Trees on beautifully manicured banks and seats to sit and read amongst the trees. The pink thing is my thumb - not to self 'must take photography lessons'
Not only is Northumberland a fabulous county but the residents all know just how to make the most of it. And if James (who left a comment on my Birthday post the other day) is reading this - I hope this just confirms that you made the right choice when booking your August holiday here.
