Limekiln Farm – 20.6.20

Open garden visit with @ccl964 to the wonderful gardens of Michael and Joan Royle at Limekiln Farm near Hailsham.
Their thoughtful map and quiz took us around their beautiful gardens. Social distancing observed at all times.
Fabulous physic and vegetable garden with raised beds. Lovely use of own grown woven willow stems as plant supports throughout.
Stunning ancient buildings with the most amazing old brick staircase on the barn covered in Erigeron.

Wonderful ancient oak tree with beautiful meadow below. Opposite side of the house a lovely herbaceous border-lined lawn. Colour schemes all thematically arranged culminating in a multicoloured rose walk to an arbour seat. Amazing scent.

Also ponds, a fabulous spinney, ancient barn for wood store and a deliciously understated looking swimming pool and pool house.
