Woodbine Cottage in Petersham Open Gardens 2014


Woodbine Cottage was the last garden that I visited in Petersham Open Gardens 2014.

By then it was quite late in the day and that, plus the slightly awkward location a little to the south of the main cluster of gardens, meant that while it was far from empty it was not frustratingly busy either and I was able to take (most) shots without people in them.



The garden was "L" shaped, or rather a reflected "L" with a lawn across the back of the house that then extended a long way back on the right-side. The long garden was broken up in to different areas each with its own character.



Looking back toward the house from about half-way down the garden shows how that lawn weaved and also how the tree helped to create a shady zone. The paving in that area suggested that the shading was too much for the grass to endure.



Right next to the house was this colourful pot made all the more dramatic by the white of the house behind it.
