Last Sunday I had the pleasure of visiting the gardens of Doddington Hall, an Elizabethan Hall near Lincoln. I didn’t know what to expect as it is not exactly garden visiting weather, however the garden was bursting with spring with a really interesting structure made all the more special by having the hall in the background. It had something for everyone with a labyrinth, wild garden, bogs and Temple of the Winds.
This Sunday (16th March) they are opening for the NGS so go! A great trip out and something to liven the senses
Everyone likes a few balls on sticks....
dogs tooth violets
I didn't get lost in the labyrinth
Rhododendron with a fabulous exotic effect leaf...I'm coming round to them more and more
Crocus's a go go
The most gnarled and ancient trees you will see in a long time
A whole avenue of globe artichokes....magnificent jungly foliage
And who can go wrong with a Unicorn topiary?
and what is more English than an old church surrounded by daffodil?
Visit! Doddington Hall is magnificent!
