Autumn Display of Perennials at Lakeland Horticultural Society, Holehird Gardens, 22nd September 2014

We visited Holehird a week ago but a combination of rain and a ruined camera meant that I failed to make the necessary clicks. However here is a series of photographs I took of the September display last year. I'd been on a writing assignment for HF Holidays. The photographs were taken on our last day. They feature the inner walled garden.

Whatever the weather, volunteers come from many miles around to give generously of their time. Indeed last weekend when floods and storms hit the Cumbrian fells there were still amateur gardeners toiling away in the 17 acres.

The gardens are free to visit though the society depends on donations. In their hillside setting overlooking Windermere a journey there is an essential part of the Lakes experience.
