Gardens Catch up

In spite of the weather it has been an interesting coupla months for garden visits in the NGS scheme. Here is a quick trip round some of them:

Trench Hill a 3 acre organic garden near Painswick set in a small woodland with amazing panoramic views.

Icomb was new to the NGS this year with five gardens opening in the village near Stowe on the Wold. Incredible views and an early C13 church.

Quenington is a well hidden Coln Valley village with a C12 Norman church and C17 stone built cottages. Great vista and a riverside walk.

Charfield provided 6 village gardens near Wotton under Edge and teas n cake at the village hall :-p

Longhope is a small village in a valley with four varying gardens, wonderful views and a C12 church.

... and last but not least our own garden in Gloucester - 

and the potato harvest is in :)
