West Green House, Hampshire

We have been to the Gardens at West Green House today. It is owned by the National Trust, but is also in the 2for1 Garden Scheme I mentioned earlier. It isn't far from us - about 45 minutes - but this was our first visit as this is the first year it has been opened at weekends.

It is a stunning place; lots of "rooms" and half way round I suddenly realised why I liked it so much; the colour schemes are what I have in my much smaller garden - all blues, pinks, mauves and whites.

Link to info about the garden.

Some pics!

You do find some lovely gardens to visit, Kits & I think this one is the nicest so far, from your photo's.
