Swerford Open Gardens

For those who live in or near the Cotswolds the Swerford open gardens is a must. Happening every three to five years around ten garden in this charming village from small cottage to large estates to Chelsea gold medal winning flower arrangements in the church open their doors to a thousand plus people. In 2017 the cost was £6 per person and it took all day for us to go round. Teas and cakes were available in several locations and there are several good pubs nearby.

Highlights for me were the orchid meadow, the scent of roses in the church. The tree house and elephant and some stunning deep purple blue delphiniums.
