It’s been a real treat for us to spend time with friends visiting some of our favourite English gardens, including Hidcote Manor, Kiftsgate Court, Rousham House, Powis Castle and Wollerton Old Hall. I’ll be sorting through pictures for a few more days yet, but wanted to share a glimpse of some classic cottage garden plants that seemed to be enjoying the sunshine: roses, delphiniums, clematis, verbascums and foxgloves.
I hope you’ll have chance to visit the gardens you love most this summer – and that if it’s winter in your part of the world, you’ll find some of your favourite cottage garden flowers here.

The photos you take paint a picture of my perfect garden. And those specimens and photos are just perfect!
Thanks Karen – I didn’t take them all in the same garden, but they’d certainly work well together.
Gorgeous pictures of gorgeous plants!
