Milton Lodge Garden Visit

I finally made it to Milton Lodge Gardens in Wells for the last open weekend of the year. The sloping, terraced garden has spectacular views over the city of Wells and across to Glastonbury Tor. The garden was full of late summer colour during my visit. Autumn leaves were just beginning to turn and drop. I particularly liked the yellow and blue flower combinations in the long border on the lower level. This private garden has many levels and walkways for the visitor to meander and admire. A photo blog of my visit follows.

Fuchsias featured prominently.
