151. HDYGG – Hinton Ampner

Hinton Ampner

A week or so ago I met up with my good friend Tarnyarrr at the National Trust’s Hinton Ampner for a morning stroll and ever-so civilised cup of coffee and slice of cake. The sun was shining and Spring was in the air.

Blossom and blue sky

The glass houses in the walled garden at Hinton Ampner are roped off, but luckily for me Tanya noticed the look of eagerness on my face and asked the head gardener if we could pop inside them to take photos, our luck was in! Thanks Tanya – mental note to self: if you don’t ask you don’t get. More in Hinton Ampner soon, in the meantime – on with the photos!

Thanks to all who joined in last week, some faves include: April flowers in Kriss’s garden, Bluebells at Reinshaw Hall Gardens, Amanda’s new cacti and succulent lusts and Stephanie who has been wielding a can of spray paint in her garden… as you do.

  1. What luck getting into the glasshouse. It reminds me of the one at Clumber Park. What a glorious day to be out and about in the garden.

  2. coffee and cake with a friend, cooler weather, fantastic buildings and scenery and so much colour, I’m getting increasingly homesick these days

  3. oh what a gorgeous spring day you had! i have such greenhouse dreams. it’s not even healthy anymore…. xx -Claudia

  4. Gooooorgeous! Glad you managed to wangle your way into the glasshouse, you got some great photos. I’ve been thinking about glasshouses lately and I’m pretty sure it’s the white painted wood with the light that gets everyone weak at the knees (it does me) 🙂

  5. Gorgeous – and my dad always says if you don’t ask you don’t get, well until I ask for something I’m not likely to get that is!! Thanks for the mention too xx

  6. I love those citrus plants against the painted wall! We have a 2 for 1 ticket for Hinto Ampner which I’ve had stuck on the fridge for about a year. We must get round to using it before it expires!

  7. There’s such a peaceful/restful feel to these photos. Just so lovely it makes me want to get into the car and head there for a stroll and, of course, a slice of cake.

  8. Lovely photos as ever. Can I ask a question – what setting did you have on the third photo from the bottom (the glasshouse) – I tried a similar photo at Heligan and it was very over exposed.
