The month of September, where late summer meets the the first inklings of autumn, is one of my favourite times of year in the garden.
Last September I visited Gresgarth Hall Garden in Lancashire, the home of acclaimed garden designer Arabella Lennox-Boyd. The garden is generally open once a month for charity – you can find details here.
My photo-montage gives a taster of the rich tapestry of colour and texture to be found throughout the garden at this time of year. This is a wonderfully designed garden (as one might expect) and historic Gresgarth Hall, in its wooded valley setting, provides an imposing backdrop.
Well worth a visit.
