One thing I absolutely love doing is visiting little local gardens. Our friends over at Me Myself and Ivy, told us about Myddleton House Gardens a little while ago and we’ve wanted to go every since. We jumped in the car together a few weeks back and spent the morning up there! It’s so beautiful. I’ve always fancied myself as a bit of a gardner (my family will laugh at me if they read this!) but practically, it just wouldn’t work. I know it’s something that I’d be unlikely to stick to. So I get my little fix by visiting local gardens! Visiting Myddleton House gardens allows you to learn about Edward Augustus Bowles, one of Britain’s most famous self-taught gardeners, artists and expert botanists.
The gardens also have a beautiful carp lake, a Victorian conservatory and a number of historical artefacts. The thing that bought us to this particular garden was the 111 year old Wisteria which turns a beautiful bright purple during May. We must have just missed it as when we turned up we couldn’t find any! We will have to try again next year because who doesn’t love gorgeous Wisteria?! It’s the beautiful Victorian glasshouses that got me though. They are just absolutely stunning. I could have wandered around all day, snapping away at the gorgeous and vast range of succulents.
There’s also a little cafe where you can have a spot to eat or drink, it consists of inside and outdoor seating making it prefect for warmer and cooler months. We spent lots of time wandering around the beautiful range of vibrant plants and different sections of the gardens. It’s somewhere you could spend lots of time generally admiring everything around you. Located in Lee Valley Regional Park, it’s easy to get to if you’re local to Hertfordshire. Do let me know if you go, I’d love to see your posts/photos! Find out lots more information on their website.
