As a garden lover….. I had the chance to visit Highgrove garden today, Prince’s Charles residence in the Cotswolds…Highgrove in my eyes is a delightful place….loved the wildflower meadows….the walled garden …..the Carpet garden which was a new addition and inspired by an Islamic theme with ceramic tiles ,roses, olive and orange trees….I could walk forever in this garden!!!
The whole experience was breathtaking, with stunning and lush landscape from woodland gardens to wild flower meadows. Very tranquil place and calming atmosphere –full of colours, scents, and sounds! Every area I saw every corner or enclosure has something to tell a little story and offer visitors a visual pleasure and a calming atmosphere.
Highgrove is an organic self -sufficient vegetable and fruit garden and there is a clear evidence that Prince Charles practices what he preaches.
There is no doubt that Highgrove is simply an amazing place and garden and has a relaxed feel and it’s definitely worth a visit.
I quote the Prince’s Charles words:
A garden should delight the eye, warm the heart and feed the soul!
