    I visited Hodnet many years ago, it is always nice to visit gardens that are still family owned as they have a style that is individual and not the “as in the trade” we used to say been National Trussed.
    By that I mean so many NT gardens when taken over are “improved” and the planting theme in many can be followed one to another, not always bad but they loose that character the original owners laid down.

      Hodnet Hall has been one of my favourite gardens for many years. On one of my early visits I was sitting enjoying the view on one of the benches when the owner breezed past me and asked if I was enjoying the garden…

      My favourite gardens (of those I have visited) in no particular order are; Hodnet Hall Gardens, Powis Castle, Alnwick Castle, Abbey House Garden and Cragside formal garden (in September).

    Beautiful. But it seems like only yesterday. This summer is going by so fast!

    I LOVE magnolia trees. In fact, aside from the weeping willow I think they are my favourite.
