Bank Holiday Weekend

Hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday (UK) weekend? I’m having a lovely one: the weather could be a bit sunnier but at least it’s dry.

I’ve spent most of the weekend in the garden and my garden project is nearly complete, I’ll put a before and after up later on.

May 1st and Breezy Knees Gardens in Warthill are open again for the season. Lots of pretty blossom on the trees and lots of flowers in bloom. I can’t wait to see how the gardens change throughout the year. A quick video of part of my visit. Let me know if you want to see more like this.

A big THANK YOU to all who have bought me a coffee (donated) to keep my page up and running, it is much appreciated. If you want to make a one of ‘coffee’ please see the link at the bottom of the page.

Breezy Knees

Twenty acres they are one of the largest gardens in the North of England and with over 7,000 different varieties of plants to discover, there’s always lots to see, with the extensive borders that form the heart of the gardens giving a succession of flowers all the way through from May to the end of September.

Breezy Knees is a beautiful place to visit and it must be quite a few years since my last visit. It is really worth a visit it is so beautiful.

Complementing these are a series of seasonal highlights, starting in May and June with the tranquility of the Pond and Shade Garden, special collections of irises and peonies and both the Rock and Shade Gardens, with their mass of early summer blooms.

By mid-summer the annual meadow is at its best, the Cottage Garden brimming with colour and the Rose Garden full of fragrance. Through August the main borders remain a riot of colour and finally, the special September Garden with its late season blooms and the Conifer Garden, with its majestic grasses, will be at their peak as the summer draws to a close.
