|Field of poppies near Northleach.|
This weekend I went on the pilgrimage to Hidcote. As my own garden is in its change-over phase at the moment and mostly green, I was looking forward to seeing this famous garden - but of course their roses were still going strong!
The most amazing thing for me is how different a garden can be on every single visit. This Saturday morning was actually pretty cold, but the air was filled with the fragrance of the varieties of mock-orange and the first lilies in bloom.
On my way back I stopped to take photos of two fields - one flax, one with so many poppies in it that it felt like a punch of colour on this grey day. I actually parked the car twice to photograph it from different angles ...
|Yeah I know. But I love this tree.|
