The click tick List – Photograph 100 gardens – Painswick Rococo Garden

garden-painswick-6

We have a long weekend here in the UK. Gav and I will not be venturing on a visit to any gardens as we are too busy with our own but I thought it would be good to carry on the sharing of gardens we have visited that also count towards my goal of photographing 100 gardens from this book.

Painswick Rococo Garden

We visited this garden in March 2015 so were too early to enjoy the extensive kitchen garden but there was still lots of interesting things to see.

Architecture plays a huge part in this place as there are at least four little buildings tucked around. All original structures from when the garden was made in the 1740 they are beautifully built and decorated.

The pond is perfectly placed so it reflects the garden and makes all the buildings seem more impressive. That white structure which is referred to as an colonnade exedra was designed for people to talk and mingle and it is both strange and striking.

There is also a sense of humour here with these giant conkers.

And lovely carvings.

And we even got to take the Buddles in with us.

Overall a joy to wander around and of course to cross off the list .

A note about the gardens we’ve visited and the click tick list.

Over the last twenty years Gav and I have been to visit many a garden. I am blogging about these visits rather too slowly but hopefully I’ll get there and have a catalogue of them all for reference and to share their beauty.

Since I drew up the click tick list we have concentrated on visiting gardens that appear in the book but there are plenty of gardens that are worth a visit that don’t appear within those pages. In this post I share where we have been (up to Feb 2014) and mention a few of the gardens not in the book.

    Thanks for the day out via the photos. Those buildings all look in amazing great shape considering they were originally built in 1740. I like to take garden tours to see how others interrupt their space & then sometimes take those ideas home. Mine you, this spring our focus has been to reduce the amount of stuff in the garden other than the plants themselves.
