Doddington Hall - Iris Week

Doddington Hall is a family home built in 1595.  This week the Iris gardens are open for visitors.

This one was my favourite.  It is called Top Gun.  Our eldest son is training to be a fast-jet pilot so it seemed appropriate that I liked this one!

The ornamental gardens are beautiful and extensive but I enjoyed wandering round their vegetable garden too.  I can't wait for the first produce from my allotment ... this place was amazing.  The artichokes were huge, the rows of cabbages were weed-free, the rhubarb was ready to cook .... all destined for the lovely Farm Shop or the Restaurant.
