Open Garden Squares Weekend: London 2013

This was a great day,

despite very difficult travelling conditions with British Rail and London Underground.

The Walled Garden at Chiswick House is being restored .

A lot of work has gone into this by volunteers.

The result is well worth a visit.

The Glass house has a notable collection of Camellias.

A talk by the Garden Manager included reference to the special specimens.

Protection and care of this collection  was covered.

I bought an Iris that will remind me of my visit.

The rest of the garden includes an English Landscape Garden,  together with beautiful beds

and an Italian Garden .
