New NGS garden in Herne Hill: lemon drizzle and a fire pit

Last Sunday we scraped off the sweat, put on more suntan lotion and tootled over to Herne Hill for a garden on Shardcroft road that was opening for the NGS for the first time.

It didn’t disappoint as the garden was well designed and planted, and the cake was top notch.mmmm lemon drizzle with a side of chocolate brownie.mmmmm.
The best bit which I would replicate was this amazing circle of birch trees in the corner of the garden (to right of summerhouse) surrounding a circular gravel? middle with 2 round benches with a fire pit in the middle.  This was next to a magazine perfect littleshed/summerhouse hideaway which made me want to live there! Apart from that there was a formal rectangular wildlife pond, and loose naturalistic planting from raised designer beds. I was particularly taken by Achillea moonshine.
