A Walk in the Park – Attingham Park – June

We made our June visit to Attingham Park early in the month to see how summer was coming on in the walled garden and in the wilder parts of the park along the woodland walks. We enjoyed a view of the cottage garden on our way to begin wandering beneath tall trees towards the walled garden.

  

The walled garden impressed us so much because it was full of colour, with plants in the double herbaceous border bursting with blooms.

We left the walled garden taking the path through the adjoining orchard, where we sat for a while to enjoy some ice-creams. Fully refreshed we followed the winding paths beneath the trees and between the shrubs, taking the Woodland Walk before taking a short cut back to the parkland, over two bridges and past the hall itself. You may notice that as we crossed over the bridges we enjoyed playing Pooh Sticks.

I thought I could share my photographs via a gallery for you to enjoy. Please click on the first pic then navigate using the arrows. I hope you enjoy the views we enjoyed.

 

Our next visit to Attingham Park will be in July when we will be well into summer.

    Looks like a very large property. Beautiful photos.Who is the little one?

  2. Yes, who is the handsome future gardener? Lovely gardens.

    • The little one is our granddaughter Arabella who already loves being outside and loves being in the garden. She explores textures of grasses in particular.

      • Hooray for a new generation of gardeners who will look at those journals and appreciate them for the art creations they are. Enjoy every minute with Arabella because it seems like grandchildren grow up ten times as fast as children do. 🙂
