The Lookout Garden   2 comments

The Lookout Garden in Kilmuir, North Kessock, in Scotland,  opens to the public as part of a scheme by a registered charity which aims to raise funds for other deserving charities. It facilitates the opening of interesting gardens, large and small, to the public, mostly on certain days of the year, though some, such as this one,  are open throughout the summer. I occasionally visit some of the ones in the area as I find the time, for inspiration and to learn.

This particular garden has had numerous challenges to overcome in its several decades of existence, due to its siting on a steep rocky hillside. It is amazing how the owners have filled every nook and cranny with plants, including a cottage garden bed, vegetables, a rose pergola, two ponds and a huge fern tree. One paltry photo can’t possibly do it justice at all.

After visits like this I go home and think, wow, if they can do that, then I can surely deal with the puny issues I face in my own garden 🙂
