A Day Out at Great Dixter

Living so close by I had to take some time out to go and visit this amazing garden. Great Dixter was the home of Christopher Lloyd who developed one of the best gardens I have ever seen.

Great Dixter House built in the mid 15th Century

The garden was in FULL bloom and looked stunning

There was colour everywhere

Christopher Lloyd was famous for his colour combinations

I loved this sunken sedum area

The Lily Pond

A topiary bird

The garden was very inspirational and I could have spent all day there. I just loved the abundance of colour and the sheer number of flowers and plants.
