We've had some lovely days out this year, visiting a garden each month. Some were better than others, but on the whole, there was something to take away from each of the gardens.
I thought it would be helpful to list each of the gardens we visited with a link to the post about them.
January - Wentworth Garden Centre Gardens
February - Roundhay Park Gardens
March - Manor Heath Park, Halifax Part One
Manor Heath Park, Halifax Part Two
April - Lister Park, Bradford Part One
Lister Park, Bradford Part Two
May - Cannon Hall Part One
Cannon Hall Part Two
June - Golden Acre Park Gardens Part One
Golden Acre Park Gardens Part Two
July - Temple Newsam Walled Garden Part One
Temple Newsam Walled Garden Part Two
August - Yorkshire Lavender
September - Thornes Park, Wakefield
October - Oakwell Hall Part One
Oakwell Hall Part Two
November - York Museum Gardens
December - Temple Newsam Gardens
I think my favourite garden of the ones visited this year was Cannon Hall. The walled garden was beautifully kept and had some wonderful, well labelled, plants and trees. We visited this garden in May but I'd like to go back a bit later in 2015 to see the apple and pear trees dripping in fruit and the vegetables ready to harvest.
Other gardens I would recommend visiting are Wentworth Garden Centre Gardens, Roundhay Park Gardens, Golden Acre Park Gardens and Temple Newsam Gardens, though all the ones I visited this year have something to offer.
I think it would be a nice idea to visit the gardens again in a different month as they can look so different at various times of the year when other plants are blooming.
I hope you've enjoyed my garden visits as much as I have.
