Drybrook open gardens

As well as visiting the open art studios of Nigel Lambert and Mariette Voke we also visited some of the wonderful gardens of Drybrook that were kindly opened to the public by their generous owners.

It's truly amazing how much effort these people put in to creating their outdoor spaces. Just take a look at these fabby gardens. With the weather being so fantastic and the owners being so friendly and inviting it was a day to remember.

Fairy tale play houses...

Perfect play areas...

Secret paths...

Beautiful veg patches...

Glorious blooms..

The village school even got in on the act with this wonderful summer house painted with pond life images.

And the school pond itself complete with newts!

Lurking lions!

And a riot of colour...

Thank you people of Drybrook for a lovely day, we totally loved every minute.


  1. What a wonderful place to visit.
    The problem is if I did... I would never want to leave.


  2. I know what you mean Debbie, it was hard to walk away from these gardens and the art studios. I can't waite for more open gardens in our area - I think I'm just nosey!!

  3. Wow, what incredible gardens! I feel very envious!
