Midsummer Colour in the Museum’s Gardens
July 15, 2014 - Bridget Woollen
Things are looking colourful in the Museum grounds…
Border in Kaffe Fassett colours. . .
and a lamp post in the same!
Past the Penstemons by the Grotto…
And head down to Mount Vernon for more colour.
Calendula in Mount Vernon.
Don’t miss the perfume of the Confederate Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) by the stables.
Have a seat in a shady spot…
Before a cup of tea on the terrace passing the spectacular succulents (Aeonium ‘schwartzkopf’)
