With a predominantly northerly wind, May 2013 has not exactly been the warmest of Mays, but it has produced some stunningly beautiful sunny days with crystal clear air. And unusually those sunny days have actually been on Bank Holiday week ends! The cold conditions have meant the Spring flowers have lingered and some of our local gardens have been looking amazing.
My photos this month mostly feature Hartland Abbey and Marwood Hill Gardens.
Hartland Abbey is a private home near Hartland Point about 40min from Georgeham. It is open to the public and the highlight this Spring were the blue bells in the woodland walking down to the sea, and the walled garden.
Marwood Hill Gardens is a favourite of ours. Just a 15 min drive away, this private garden is tucked away in a sheltered valley and even featured on Gardeners World last week for it’s Magnolias.
