Mrs Greville’s rose garden at Polesden Lacey in the Surrey Hills is set out in a simple cross pattern, with long, box-edged, wooden pergolas, adjoining seams of ‘Munstead’ and deeper ‘Hidcote’ lavenders, walls draped in clematis and a water tower festooned in an old Chinese wisteria, it is a mass of pink and white in the summer months.
This view is towards the well-head.

These are absolutely stunning!
A rose garden is very special.
A really feminine garden very pretty Jude.
When I wrote about the house and garden I had forgotten that I had actually visited once when the roses were in bloom! Never did catch the Iris garden though… have to be there in May I suppose.
Fresh and gorgeous. Thank you. Brings to mind witty conversation, triangle sandwiches, Earl Grey tea, and romance…sigh.
Oh, yes, all of those things! Simply a ‘little’ second home 🙂 Click on the link to the full post about the house and garden if you want to see more.
Haven’t been there for years since we lived in Farncombe- what a wonderful reminder, thanks.
You didn’t live far from us then, we were in Haslemere.
stunning . . . . for a moment sitting here I thought it was summer!
Won’t be long… says she optimistically 🙂
Have you been outside today. Took my breath away!!! I’m counting down the days to fly back to Jo 😎
Are you back in England? I hadn’t realised. Not so bad here – about 6.5 degrees – and no wind so quite pleasant in the sunshine. And SO nice to see sun at last!
I am! Just for a few more days 🙂
The roses are beautiful. It won’t be long and they’ll be coming into flower again.
Beautiful! My grandmother grew roses. One bush still survives (she passed in 1980)! My uncle and aunt look over it. It’s a harder bush. It has even been frozen in the cold WV winters and came back!
Thank you for your post and pictures!
You are very welcome Sheila, thank you for your lovely comment.
