Coton Manor Gardens, Northamptonshire. 13/07/2019
I know I’ve taken you here before but it was a couple of years ago and much earlier in the year so I hope you enjoy today’s trip. We met Liam and Liz at Market Harborough for coffee and a wander round the shops before driving to Coton, about 20 minutes away. After a delicious lunch of lasagne, sitting outside in the courtyard under a huge ash tree, we started our tour of the gardens.
Cleome….there were many of these round the garden in different colours. Such a pretty flower but VERY prickly stems.
This Liriodendron was multi stemmed and very tall.
At the end of the garden walk lies the nursery and you will be proud of me because I didn’t give way to temptation! However……where we sat under the tree having tea and cake, the whole area is surrounded by plants for sale…..yep, I succumbed and bought a dark red flowered eupatorium and a green/gold variegated comfrey. It would have been rude not to…….wouldn’t it?
I hope you enjoyed the flowers, chickens, ducks and flamingos, we did.
