Over the last couple of years we have received in the post a brochure called 'Great Gardens' which contains gift vouchers to gardens in the Staffordshire/Shropshire/Cheshire region. So armed with our 'two for one' voucher we decided that now would be the time for a visit.
The flower borders were looking particularly wonderful with swathes of gorgeous colour. At this time of year the garden is noted for its Rhododendron and Azalea displays in the quarry garden. Around every corner was a new and delightful vista, a rainbow of colours, a feast for the eyes.
We didn't know which way to turn next. I don't think that photographs can do justice to the vividness of the colours but at least you can get some idea of how lovely it was.
We spent nearly three hours wandering around, taking photographs, chatting to other admiring visitors and last but not least coffee and scones in the tearoom.
