In this post in my series featuring looking back at gardens visited in 2012, I will share photographs of an autumn visit to the wonderful Trentham, one of our favourite places to visit.
We took friends Jean and Tony with their granddaughter Lucy to share our enjoyment of this latest of our regular visits to these wonderful gardens designed by favourites, Piet Oudolf and Tom Stuart-Smith.
Perhaps this sign in the first photo is inviting us to get lost in wonder.
The garden is still full of colourful flowers in October. Each flower colour is enhanced by the gentle neutral shades of the grasses.
Lucy needs regular re-fuelling! She also needs time to play and enjoy an occasional sit down.
Trentham once again provided us a real treat. We’ll be back again soon.

Lovely place and to share with friends is even better. From your directionally challenged reader across the pond – I’d probably still be standing at the sign trying to figure out which way they meant for me to go.
Well, it is a very nice place to get lost so I wouldn’t worry too much. Malc
I would welcome getting lost here! Such a cute sign. Someone was being playful when they thought of it. Margie
Trentham is a playful garden full of paths to explore. Children enjoy the paths through tall plantings of grasses in particular. Malc
