Wassand Hall walled garden.


Friday 10th June, 2016.
One of the signs of summer is the seasonal opening of Wassand Hall. This is now firmly on our calendar as something we aim to attend when possible. The Hall is well worth visiting in it's  own right, however, I am more interested in the walled garden. The laburnum trees which are trained over frameworks, with their hanging yellow racemes, are a delight. I think they will develop a little more over the next two or three weeks. Some roses are in flower now with the promise of more to come soon. Here is a little sketch which gives a flavour of how one side looks now. It was interesting to notice the Union Jack, just emerging from the greenery on the left. This, of course, I am sure, is to honour the birthday of Her Majesty the Queen, who has her official 90th birthday on this day.
The weather was wonderful on this visit, though rain had been promised it held off, little or no wind and a stillness combined to produce an ethereal atmosphere.
Of course, another feature of any visit to Wassand is to partake in the refreshments offered in the tearoom. This is simply wonderful. Homemade cakes with tea or coffee served by dedicated staff who also have prepared the food.
