A Day Out

As my parents were staying we decided to have a day trip, we're lucky that we live pretty close to a lot of National Trust properties and as we're all members they usually make a pretty cheap day out! We decided to try out Tyntesfield, in Wrexall the other side of Bristol, its a Gothic Victorian house and gardens, I like the houses but I usually much more interested in the garden, when we got there I found out this place had a walled kitchen garden in the grounds, hurrah!

The kitchen garden was split in to two, one cutting garden and one traditional walled veg garden.

I think my favourite bit was the wonderful Victorian greenhouses set along the walls, they were mostly made of cast iron and brick, wouldn't it be amazing to have one of these in your garden!!

I love these little finials on top of the doors.

I wish I had this much space to grow veg...

I also love these, there terracotta celery forcing pots, brilliant aren't they!

So all in all a pretty good day out, I always enjoy seeing how other people grow their veg which just goes to show how sad I am!
