I went today to Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire to see some Art, but the garden was what won my heart.
It begins neatly and quite formally.
All tended by volunteers it's full of flowers and produce just as you'd find in a cottage garden or allotment.
Smart chicken houses - with slate roofs!
It isn't pristine but it is pretty and my kind of garden. Created by the gardeners' love of plants and the growing of them. I bought some good veg for supper.
