The snowdrops at Painswick Rococo garden are a truly amazing sight at the moment. However, I decided I preferred this photo of the benches overlooking the maze instead.
There’s much more about these fantastic trees over at Veg Plotting today…
The Lych Gate at St Mary’s church is also a dwelling. Here’s part of the detail of the half timbered building.
St Mary’s at Painswick is a Grade I listed building. I didn’t venture inside, but had a rather lovely time in the grounds at the end of February. It’s also rather noted for its Yew trees: around 100 of them.
It’s an ordinary looking bench, but being surrounded with thousands of snowdrops makes it extraordinary 🙂
This rather grand building was indeed used to house pigeons at Painswick Rococo Garden and dates from the 18th Century. The interior doesn’t match the exterior – the outside upper storey is octagonal with 8 windows, inside it is circular with 4 windows.
The Bothy (aka potting shed) at Painswick Rococo Garden had lots of spuds set out for chitting. Most were familiar heritage varieties, such as Belle de Fontanay, but I loved this new find. Not only was it heritage, it was local to the garden.
