Biddulph Grange Gardens – part 1

Biddulph Gardens & Grange

Biddulph Grange Gardens near Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire is owned by The National Trust although only the gardens, the grange house is privately owned. It was a popular destination, it was difficult to take photos with no people in them, but I couldn’t help thinking that it must be very strange to live in a house that size, but have no real garden of your own. I think it must be awful to have nowhere to hang out your washing! Trust me to think of the domestic problems. On the other hand you have these beautiful gardens on your doorstep and you don’t have the worry of the upkeep of them. The photo above is of their monkey puzzle tree area, the framework on the right is sheltering a display of baby monkey puzzles (Araucaria).

  1. What a gorgeous garden. The Chinese garden looks especially lovely. Are the leaves turning color already? Not sure why I’d be surprised since trees are starting to change here too 🙂

    • Stefanie,
      Just a few trees are beginning to turn colour at the tips of the leaves now. We feel that we’ve hardly had a summer though, the weather hasn’t been good at all and we still live in hope of an ‘Indian summer’.
