After a heavy shower as the Gardens opened the weather was much better than the forecast with only the odd shower through the afternoon and even the occasional outbreak of sunshine. Despite the weather and the counter attraction of Her Majesty the Queen's birthday celebrations on the box there was a fair turnout of visitors (and residents) making the most of the opportunity to see what lies behind the garden walls of Farringdon.
As usual, the arrival of the 'Biz snapper was greeted with varying degrees of insult, ranging from grudging acceptance to variations on the theme that he would be well advised to move in the general direction of elsewhere with some haste. Since he is completely lacking in any social skills your photographer pressed on regardless and would like to express his thanks to all the Farringdon Gardeners who allowed him to photograph their Horticultural achievements.
Due to the number of gardens and the time he spends exchanging gossip it would have been difficult for the 'Biz' snapper to make it around all the gardens open in the time available so the images from Berry Cottage and the Thatched Cottage were taken the week before when both were open under the National Gardens Scheme.
Clicking on the links below will take you to the images from the garden, although your 'Biz' photographer was a trifle demoralised to find himself sharing several gardens with a proper photographer from the Herald!
