One Reason to Visit Hidcote

Hidcote in Gloucestershire is one of the most famous gardens in England. Next to Sissinghurst, it is one of the must-see items on any gardener's itinerary of the country. Kieron and I went yesterday and even in the rain and unseasonable cold, it was well worth a visit. This was our first time, but we'll probably come back some day when the sun is shining.

The photo below is of the double borders in the Pillar Garden. Blowsy, pink peonies and metallic, mauve alliums dominate but you can see that there will be lilies and roses later on.

Update at 12.12, 30 May 2007: The size of the wallpaper photo is incorect. I'll have to fix it tonight when I get home.
