We visited Bourton House Gardens last week. We had visited several years ago but had been given a 2 for the price of 1 admission, so decided to call on the way to Broadway and what a happy decision that proved to be! The garden was stunning, full of magificent late summer colour. The borders were packed with still flowering plants and looked amazing while the topiary was neat and looked freshly trimmed. This garden was an inspiration to me that colour doesn't have to finish in July and I called at the Fosseway Garden Centre later to collect some autumn colour for my borders, seeking out some of the plants I'd seen. There are plenty of seats to enjoy the view, we particularly liked the ones facing the house, as you can watch the butterflies and bees on the border plants in front of you. The tithe barn is excellent for refreshments, lovely cake which is obviously homemade, rounded off our visit nicely. Earlier in the week we had visited Hidcote Manor, but Bourton House surpassed it on this occasion for colour and interest.
