Troutbeck Garden Trail 2015 in pictures

Thankfully the weather was dry for the 2015 Troutbeck Garden Trail, and the sunshine even made an appearance in the afternoon. Instead of writing about the trail, I thought I’d pick 15 of my favourite photos to share with you. They were quick snaps taken using my camera phone, and although I’ve still not learned to avoid covering the lens with the odd stray finger (I’m definitely safer with the SLR), I think the pictures will pass the share test. 🙂

You can read my original blog post about the Troutbeck Garden Trail – which in my opinion is a true Lake District Gem – here.

    Cumbria has lots of open gardens throughout the season. There are several independent trails organised in May and June in particular, which are usually advertised in the local newspaper The Westmorland Gazette.

    The National Garden Scheme (NGS), in particular, has a huge variety of open gardens listed on its website – you can read more about the NGS in Cumbria at: http://lakedistrictgems.co.uk/2015/02/21/cake-anyone-ngs-unveils-its-cumbrian-gardens-for-2015/
