Weekend Wandering: Glasshouse envy at Helmsley Walled Garden

The Orchid House at Helmsley Walled Garden
Helmsley Walled Garden - a wonderful place we visited whilst on holiday earlier this year

Weekend Wandering: a new strand where I'll bring you some of my best articles away from the blog, or we'll stay here and look at a special place to go for a stroll. The restored glasshouses at Helmsley Walled Garden deserve a story of their own.

If you'd prefer to stay on Veg Plotting, here are a few more pictures to show Helmsley Walled Garden has more than just glasshouses. Nestled below Helmsley Castle, it's a garden with a strong story, great beauty and atmosphere. NAH didn't mind me wandering off to take oodles of photos. "I'll just sit here" he said, "Take your time, it's peaceful". Can you spot him in the collage?

We visited in June and there was plenty of promise of more to come

    1. Indeed it is Sue... I'm also pleased to have broken my laburnum arch duck. I've missed seeing them in their full glory at Bodnant and Barnsley House!
