On the way home from Bournemouth I stopped at Furzey Gardens in the New Forest, a mainly informal woodland garden with lovely views to the Isle of Wight. The highlight at this time of year has to be the cottage garden, packed with vegetables, fruit and flowers which perfectly complements the 16th century cottage.
The cottage used to house a family with 13 children and feels like a little dolls house inside. I'm sure the garden wasn't as pretty back then. It's run as a charity with volunteers and students with learning disabilities and is just gorgeous.
Thank you for sticking with me while I catch up on my garden visits. Not too many more to go!
