- Easton Walled Gardens, Lincolnshire -
The Pickery, Easton's cut flower garden, is abundant with blooms, billowing, sprawling and heaving in a reservoir of insects. I can't stay away!
Prevailing heady temperatures sees many gardens throughout the UK erupting and bulging at the seems. Easton is no exception. It gardens are a heaving, sprawling sea of blooms. With the Autumn Equinox looming, there is a noticeable change in the light. Autumnal light is forgiving, warm and shadows begin to extend. On arrival, and throughout my visit, not a cloud frequented the sky, so I lingered ov a piece of delicious chocolate cake, and an Americano until the sunlight softened.
September blooms: Echinacea, Pennisetum orientale fountain grass, Dahlia, Rudbeckia, Helenium 'Vicky', Antirrhinum, Stipa tenuissima now officially known as Nassella tenuissima.
