Catching up with the gardens I've visited (hdygg 119)

I thought with this being the last HDYGG in August that it might be nice to catch up with a few of the gardens I’ve visited this month. I seem to have excess photos lying in folders on my computer from the Summer holidays and when you put them together they give a nice snapshot into where I have mooching and what I’ve been loving. Next week it will be September! Eee!

Thanks to all who joined in last week, some faves include: Blackberry joy here and here, proof that hard work in the gardens pays off here, here and here, fascinating family gardens here and here and another interesting London space discovered by Stephanie here.

This morning I’m off to Mottisfont with Baking Betsy , I’ll post the photos from our trip for next weeks HDYGG!

  1. I cant believe its nearly September! A beautiful snapshot, your summer looks very colourful! Thank you for featuring my post, have a lovely day at Mottisfont. One of my favourite allotment bloggers goes there a lot and it looks beautiful x

    1. It is lovely there. Close by is Hillier Gardens which I think is even nicer – lovely area to be in in general Romsey 🙂 You are most welcome and thank you for saying thank you! x

  2. Gorgeous images summing up a great month in the garden and in nature. Nearly September, doesn’t seem like a moment since last autumn. Love this time of year now with some flowers past their peak and some still blooming, everywhere feels very earthy. I hope my tomatoes hurry up and turn red, every year I am putting them in the tea towel drawer to ripen 🙂

  3. Annie, you have visited some beautiful places and you have been surrounded by so much beauty!!! just a tad envious over here. this post made my tooth ache more…. xx

  4. I want to push the pause button and keep on enjoying this month (preferably with sunshine rather than rain). Your photos just beautifully sum up and display the gorgeous blooms of August!

  5. You’ve visited some gorgeous places Annie. This post is just what I needed today; a big dose of nature in all its glory. I have a soft spot for pigs and let out a little squeak of delight when I saw those two nosing around in the New Forest. I just want to give them a big cuddle!! Don’t think they’d be too happy about that though. Good to see lots of hydrangea love in here.

  6. oh how I love this, glorious, glorious photos – what a summer…. not all cracking, flagstones, but it doesn’t have to busting hot to be beautiful.

  7. What a gorgeous August you’ve had, but also everything through Annie’s eyes/lens looks gorgeous. Love those piggies strutting their stuff. Very handsome.

  8. the hydrangeas this summer have reminded me a lot of my gran, she had her whole garden almost full with them, I’m going to try the succulents once i’ve got over the price and find a way of elevating them rather than just as ground coverage

      1. annie you’ve forced me into writing a blog post which i’ve been meaning to do for ages, i get asked this question a lot but in short it’s bloody expensive to live here
