How does your garden grow?

Oh my, a post of epic photographical proportions! This week Ozzy and I headed to the Isle of Wight to visit Osborne House in the glorious sunshine and I actually let out a loud ‘hell yeah!’ when I spied the walled garden and a groan of Wimbledon womens finals proportions when I found the greenhouses. I won’t lie to you, I did briefly look round for a large wrought iron mounted hook that I could hang Ozzy up on by the back of his shorts for a couple of hours so I could root about and take loads of photos…

Luckily Ozzy also loved the garden and went off exploring – he really loved the giant succulents in the greenhouses –   ‘ Look! Monster plants mummy!’ Funnily enough that final photo was what greeted us at the entrance, I’m not sure if you can make out what it says – How does your garden grow? What are the chances?! So many plants that I wouldn’t know where to begin to so the photos will have to suffice, I did love how all plants were lovingly labelled *sigh*

I fell completely in love with the walled garden and it’s going to take a very special garden for me to top this weeks How does your garden grow? me thinks. I could apologise for the photo heavy post but I’m not going to *pokes tongue out* I HAVE NO SHAME!

I’m really looking forward to looking at more gardens this week so bring them on!

Faves from last week include; the perfect flower protector, beautiful butterflies from West Virginia, Anniversary blooms, the willing of the carrot and the rose garden.

    Oh! I love Osbourne House but I’ve only ever been there when in charge of school groups, which makes it v hard to appreciate everything. Do they still have those lovely miniature gardening tools that the Royal Children played with? What beautiful pics, you’ve made me want to hop on a ferry!

    I love the walled garden! it reminds me of that movie “The Secret garden” which is my favorite. To sit in there with a good book , listening to the birds and being completely alone…bliss! I really should visit the botanic gardens here now that i have seen all of your lovely pictures..

    Gorgeous!! I wish I had the time a patience to create a garden so stunningly beautiful and full of life and colour and how I long for a cold frame (simple things eh?).
