If you are not familiar with the format, several gardens in a town or village open up to the public for an afternoon and you buy a ticket (which raises money for charity) and you can walk around their gardens.
There is a slight theme to these garden pictures in that our town sits on the top of Ironbridge Gorge so many people are gardening on a steep hill. They were amazing in their ingenuity.
Many had a flat patio area to catch the sun.
Many had steps and terracing.
Some were wild and free.
Some were hidden and challenging.
One was simply huge.
But they were all beautiful and inspiring.

Edit: I forgot to say, we did buy an ice lolly for them both half way round to eek it out a bit longer!
