Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire.
The walled garden is one of my favourite spots to while away an hour or two and we gravitate towards it regularly throughout the year, probably visiting once a month.
In summer, with the warmth of the sun intensified by the high surrounding walls, it is such a glorious space. I love the old, sun-bleached bricks, the dusty paths, the soft flower borders and the oversized greenhouse.
The garden organised in sections; the middle beds house neatly planted rows of vegetables and herbs, while the surrounding walls are decorated with climbing pears, apples and plums. Alongside the paths are densely planted borders of blooms… iris, roses, peonies, aliums and dahlias.
This weekend the scent from the roses was heavenly. Most of the peonies were still in bud, but a few handsome blooms greeted us. I always take a peek in the greenhouse to see what is on the way… this week there were rows upon rows of geraniums awaiting planting.
