Today I paid my first vist to Vann Water Gardens in Surrey. It will not be my last! What an amazing place - rambling Tudor house surrounded by immaculate Spring planting, then on to water gardens where meandering streamside banks are carpeted with daffodils, anenomes and the most exquisite snake's head fritillaries (Fritillaria meleagris). Gertrude Jekyll was the mastermind behind this beautiful garden. She certainly knew what she was doing - this has to be one of the finest Spring Gardens in Britain. Do visit their website: Vann Garden to find out about other openings later in the year - I might just see you there! And I make no apologies for the amount of photos I've posted below - I was snapping left, right and centre!
