Sizergh Gardens in Spring

My last blog post about Sizergh included photos taken in August 2018, after the spring with the long, hot spell. We visited again at the end of April 2019. We’d just arrived at the cottage after a 4.5 hour drive, and unpacked all our stuff. It was a hot, sunny afternoon, and Sizergh is just the right distance away for a stroll, and to take a look at the gardens (as members of the National Trust, we get in free).

The main rock garden was mostly green or bare, with things just beginning to grow, and the main border was neatly weeded but with nothing in flower. The blossom between the yew pyramids was lovely, though.

We visited the woodland path above the rock garden. Here, lots of the yellow daffodils were dying off, but there were drifts of white towards the end of the path.

At the corner, a bench was surrounded by white and golden daffodils–just the place to sit for a while with a book!

Then the path bends downwards to the Stump garden, with more colour and a view of the impressive chimneys on the main building.

There is not so much to see in April as at some other times of the year, but it is a good destination for a short walk at any time.
