A IS FOR?
The garden at Arley Hall in Cheshire is renowned for its artistically planted double herbaceous borders which are at their peak in high summer. You can see some glimpses below of how the borders looked last summer. The hall and garden opens throughout the year, from the beginning of April to the end of October. It is not far from us and is one of my favourite places to visit. Arley is the scene of some special events including plant fairs and a two day garden festival held at the end of June. The latter event is held at a most auspicious time for viewing the double borders. The above bench is in a quiet corner of the garden and it is the perfect spot to watch the world go by. Looking again at the photo after some time I am amazed at the height of those white foxgloves.
