Today I have a a few photos showing the wonderfully old and weathered garden ornaments you can find if you poke around a bit.
Photo 1 – Beautifully weathered garden urn and bird statues from Mapperton House gardens, Beaminster, Dorset.
Photo 2 – A new use for an old sink, a trough for goats, Cornwall.
Photo 3 – An lovely urn full of spring flowers, Hidcote Gardens, Gloucestershire. NT
Photo 4 – A very picturesque and old Cotswold stone fountain from Snowshill, Gloucestershire. NT
Photo 5 – Another beautifully weathered urn from Hanbury Hall, Worcestershire. NT
Photo 6 – Urns on the steps to the Avon River, Charlecote, Warwickshire. NT
NT = National Trust properties.
More info can be found on the National Trust or for Mapperton, and Cornwall on these websites.
Fun Tip: Keep kids or kids at heart busy by counting the numbers of urns they encounter on an afternoon visit to any one of these wonderful gardens…and afterwards stop off for a relaxing (?) afternoon tea…
