What's Behind the Walls?

Yesterday I started back to playing badminton again and as the Leisure centre is near the walled garden, I decided to go in and see the end of their summer flowers although I had only about 15 minutes before another appointment.  So for a change to my usually wordy post, I would like you to get a coffee and sit back for a few minutes to enjoy the wonderful coloured displays the gardeners have planted in this walled area.





 









































I loved this year that the Council planted a few beds of wildflowers not only in the Walled Garden but also in the middle of the town and I hope for next year, they will plant even more wild beds.

    1. Yes they are. there were also deep red ones that I didn't photograph and they were even more unusual. perhaps the garden will be open next Tuesday when I am going to badminton again and I may take some more photos. Glad you enjoyed the post and thanks for comments

  16. A riot of colour; beautiful.

    As much as I like the formal garden, I think the 'wild' area is excellent.
