Life and Thyme!

We returned to Scampston Hall walled garden yesterday, what a difference a few months make.

The vegetable area.

Full to bursting!

The flower beds

A riot of colour.

Not enough colour?

How’s that? Still not enough?

En masse?

We went inside the conservatory/ orangery …whatever you want to call it.

To the Head Gardeners office! And next door there just happened to be an embroidery exhibition based on the landscape gardens of Capability Brown.

Sorry about the reflections, it was a very hot day.

Oh yes well worth a return visit. We had lunch too, and very nice it was.

Hope everyone finds something really marvellous this weekend.

  1. Looks lovely – AND embroidery as well – perfect.
    Love the name – SCAMPston – a place for scamps to dwell.

  2. Oh yes. Thank you for moving this up our ‘must visit’ list.

  3. Stunning!
    Thank you!

  4. Lovely views. How wonderful to see the exhibit!

  5. Fabulous! I want a vegetable garden like that, complete with a team of gardeners please. Wouldn’t mind the Head Gardener’s office as well.

  6. Wow–I liked my gardens until I saw these! Now I want to run outside and plant more stuff!

  7. No relation to this post but I just saw this quote from Rumi on FB and thought of you Cathy:
    Your acts of kindness are iridescent wings of divine love, which linger and continue to uplift others long after your sharing.
