Gardens galore to drool over!
For a Sunday afternoon each June the South Downs village of Amberley open up its garden in aid of charity. If you have never been to the village = it is off the B2139 from Bury Hill to Storrington. The village has a population of just 533 souls – and the most amazing houses and gardens!
I have made a big collection of photos on my Pinterest page -so do like and follow the Amberley board. (It’s easy to set up a Pinterest account and totally free.)
But, seriously – photos do not do the village justice! DO go and pay a visit.
In addition to the 20 gardens that are open at Amberley there is another large estate and garden which is open the same day – New Park House at Madehurst – is very special and opens for the NGS. It has a monumental walled garden – several acres!! with a pool and tennis court – rolling grassland and woods – all looking towards the coast.
The homemade cakes and icecream were great, and of course there was a plant stall too! How can gardeners resist?!
