Polesden Lacey is my nearest National Trust property, it has a beautiful walled rose garden. This week I visited with my mother. As we strolled around admiring the roses, we came across this border stuffed full of alliums and peonies which I had not seen before. The peonies were still mainly in tight bud but I suspect that by this weekend they will both be in full bloom.
In addition to the house and garden, Polesden Lacey is surrounded by an estate in which it is possible to wander widely. Visits with the Junior CWs usually see us striding round the woodlands or geocaching.
