Having arranged to visit our son and dil who live near London, we usually just stop half way for lunch at a pub in a little village. Thanks to Jessica at Rusty Duck writing a post about the garden at Hauser and Wirth Gallery in Somerset, designed by Piet Oudolf, I realised that it was just off the A303 which we would be travelling along, so seemed the ideal spot for a break. It was a shame about the weather, we had rain all the way, but it didn’t stop our enjoyment of the garden.
By the time we had walked round all the garden, the rain was torrential, so we made a quick dash to the car and went and had our lunch at our usual pub which was on the other side of the A303. It made a lovely break in our journey and one that we will repeat in the future, maybe at a different time of year, to see what is there then.
Obviously this is the garden to visit at the moment, I got back from London and there was a post waiting for me from Alison at the Blackberry Garden showing her visit there a couple of weeks ago. It is well worth a visit if you are in the area or passing. There was plenty there to inspire me with the planting of the border by the field, but really, to do it justice, I would need to buy the field next door!
