Each time I visit the beautiful gardens at Loseley Park in Surrey, I love seeing how different they look depending on the time of year. I took the photos in today’s blog post in June when I was invited to a Press Event. Michael More-Molyneux, the owner of the house, gave us a brief tour of some of the history rich rooms, before head gardener Burney gave us a tour of the gardens.
I love the Rose Garden, brimming full of scented blooms…!
Thank you so much to Burney, (pictured on the left below) for the wonderful tour!
The gardens are open from May through to September. And you could combine your visit with one of the many events, which are held at Loseley Park throughout the year. For example, from Thursday until Monday, 18th August, the Surrey Sculpture Society Exhibition is taking place. Or if you’re a bride-to-be, you may like to visit the Wedding Fair, which takes place on October 5th.
P.S. There’s also a lovely tearoom there, which serves cakes and cream teas!

A timelapse video showing the creation of a floral tribute to welcome Manchester United’s new manager Louis Van Gaal. William Hill commissioned the glorious 18ft by 12ft portrait of Van Gaal outside the National Football Museum. It was made entirely out of the Dutch national flower, tulips….25,000 of them!
So, I hope you’ve enjoyed this Sunday’s blog post and have a lovely day…!

Thank you very much everyone for your lovely comments about my video yesterday! I really appreciate it. I think I’ve just about worked out now how to use my camera to shoot videos, so that’s the next step that I need to take! As it’s the first of the month, here’s my round-up of floral happenings taking place in August…
