Gledhow Gardens – Open Garden Squares 2016

From Bina Gardens I strolled to Gledhow Gardens, another amazing green space hidden between tall buildings, some of which front on to a busy main road. The gardens are owned by the residents and date back to the 1840s when the Gunter family started building in the area. The gardens were laid out in the 1890s.

The trees in the square are particularly beautiful.

There was this pretty flower – does anyone know what it is? And a lovely violet fuchsia (Gayrigg?).

The Philadelphus was in full flower, and there were at least two varieties (Virginal and perhaps Beauclerk) .

There were lots of pretty geraniums (Geranium Oxonianum, I think), and some roses.
