    Off on another garden visit holiday next Sunday with my Bestie.  Will be staying at a village outside Leeds this time and the gardens we plan to visit are.
    On the way up Middleton Hall
    York Gate Gardens
    Burton Agnes Hall
    Ripley Castle
    Harlow Carr
    On the way back Renishaw Hall

    Just wondered if anyone thinks we are missing a hidden gem.
    I'll take photos and post for anyone interested.

    Came back from Garden Trip yesterday and thought I would share a few photos with you. 
    My favourite garden was, without doubt, York Gate Garden nr Leeds.
    Harlow Carr was a delight
    Burton Agnes was lovely
    Ripley Castle extremely disappointing
    Didn't get to Renishaw Hall but did find a wonderful garden centre on the way back Reuben Shaw and Sons at Newthorpe nr Nottingham.  Anyone who lives nearby is very lucky.

    Below are the Harlow Carr photos.  The alpine house was really lovely.

    Finally, here are a few photos from Burton Agnes Hall.  They had some lovely magnolias.

    Lovely photos, Yvie. York Gate does look particularly wonderful.

    Thanks for posting @Yviestevie , York Gate is definitely on my list. Those magnolias are beautiful too.

    York Gate looks amazing 😀. Thanks for sharing Yvie 👍🏻
    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.

    It was @Chicky. Just my type of garden.   Wished I lived nearer so I could visit it in the Summer.

    There are quite a few interesting (indeed "remarkable") gardens in Brittany. This week-end, the Parc floral de Haute Bretagne was celebrating the hanami, the traditional Japanese cherry blossom viewing in Spring. Here are some photos taken during the visit. You can watch the complete photo gallery on my garden site at http://www.rezeau.org/wp-garden/en/hanami-at-the-parc-botanique-de-haute-bretagne/







    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Lovely pics, @Yviestevie .
    Renishaw Hall will be better in the summer when the roses and herbaceous borders are in full flow.  That's an excuse for another trip  :).
    It's donkey's ages since I've been to Ripley Castle so thanks for the warning, I won't bother going again any time soon, but I think York Gate will be on the list.  Harlow Carr is one of our regular days out at any time of year, and never disappoints.
