Glad it’s not just my sweetcorn!

Today, it being the last Sunday of September, and there being the chance of my getting into Scampston Walled Garden at a reduced price, we paid a visit to this attraction.

As usual, one of the attractions for me was to see what was going on in the vegetable patch. And I was glad to see that my sweetcorn weren’t the only to look like those pictured below!

I don’t think I need a photo of similar in my own back garden…. Instead, here are some photos of other things I liked on the Scampston estate.

It was altogether a beautiful day, though I am not sure we will make a return visit. There are more splendid walled gardens closer to home – and I can see these for free. It is good to feel I am getting value from my RHS membership, however, and to have ticked another minor ambition off the list.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
