A local garden that has been on my radar for a little while is Oxburgh Hall, near Swaffham in Norfolk. I wanted to get to see the glasshouse which was rebuilt by volunteers and completed in 2010. I love visiting kitchen gardens as well as more formal gardens and Oxburgh has a particularly quaint kitchen garden. It was very hot and sticky weather when I visited and here are a few pictures to share with you.

The Hall with it's surrounding moat.
Oxburgh has the most amazing examples of Tudor chimneys.

The beautiful herbaceous border is reached via the orchard and was a special feature for, "ladies of the house to enjoy". I love expressions like this, almost as good as, "Taking a turn about the room"!
