Wallington Walled Garden ~ February 2019

Regular readers might remember my posts of the wonderful interior at Wallington Hall back in October 2018, if not, check it out HERE if you like. In February Sophie and I revisited the walled gardens as we had heard about the field of crocuses/crocusi/croci (whatever plural you prefer) on display.

On our way to the garden, we took in the view across the fields from Wallington Hall.

Misty Morning

There was a ‘plant some snowdrops’ thing going on where the public could help the gardeners populate areas with snowdrops, but there were quite a few parents and kids doing it, and we left them to it.

DIY Snowdropping

Had a close encounter with a duck along the way


and then we got to the crocus field

There were more in beds in front of the conservatory

and a lovely view of the crocus field.

We couldn’t resist revisiting in the conservatory

and then we walked back past one of the lakes

to have lunch in the cafe there

Waiting and Watching.

Stay tooned for our next adventure!

  4. The dream of a painter. Have you seen “What dreams may come” with Robin Williams? There are scenes of a painterly paradise, they were shot on Velvia to get the most of the colors. This beautiful garden made me recall that fictitious place, here in our world : )
