FRIDAY FLOWERS: ENGLISH GARDENS

I’m off in another week to England: three days in London, six days in the Cotswolds, and then back to London for four more days.

Here is just a small preview of some of the gardens on my tour in the Costwolds…something to whet your appetite and perhaps you will turn a bit pea green!

Our first day includes Hidcote Manor

 Kiftsgate Court

Three generations of women gardeners: that alone makes me want to visit.

and Campden House

This is the “white sunk garden”; just one of the many gardens in this private estate.

And this is only our first day!! It will be a true luxury to be with other “garden geeks” as my husband likes to call me. No, he will not be there!

My first three nights will be here at
Cotswold House Hotel and Spa
Let’s hope we return in the afternoons in time for tea…always my favorite time.

So there you have a short introduction to my upcoming trip. Oh yes, there is lots more of course. I’m seeing various friends and fellow bloggers; daughter will be meeting me in London for a much-too-short Mother/Daughter trip; I have a much anticipated meeting with two very special people which I will reveal later.

If you’re new here you might want to read about my past trip to England in 2014:

There was more…so much more but these were some of the highlights.
As usual, you will be able to follow me on Instagram. I have both cell and WiFi service over there, so I’ll try and post images and stories every day!
