The Beth Chatto Garden

Well where to today? I decided to visit the Beth Chatto Garden near Colchester.

The garden is one of a handful of top ranked two starred gardens in the Good Garden Guide. I am not enitrely in agreement. Don't get me wrong this is a VERY pretty garden in places and there is much to admire, I just have a few reservations there are a few areas that aren't quite right. I'm not sure it was really "designed". Still its well worth a visit.

Looks a pleasant garden and some lovely pictures. The 2nd pic is the one that really catches my eye - so peaceful :)

There are some beautiful and unusual plants there, Pete. As always great photos - I like the atmospheric black and white ones.

What lovely flowers and colors. Just delightful to come and take a break and just enjoy your garden.

Looks a lovely garden, but I bet the two stars has more to do with the name associated with it than with any outstanding merits.
