Last week I shared some shots from the Bletchingdon Garden. Of course there were way to many pictures for one post; (and there still is, even after whittling them down!) so I'm sharing the shots from the Islip garden here.
As you wander down the twisting brick path, you cross under the arbour into the shady area.
Dabbled shade in the garden feels so luxiousiously natural somehow. Not so exposed. Peaceful. I loved it.
So did my little man. His favourite bit was the brick path. I think he also liked he felt hidden in the back of the garden.
I certainly didn't feel much like a lady ready for a garden tea party; having rushed straight out to the gardens after a cleaning frenzy at home, but I did enjoy this lady-like cuppa.
Up and down the path, again and again, mindful of the plants.
