This unusually steep garden belongs to friends in Shipley, West Yorkshire. With its stone edged terraces and winding flight of steps, it weaves its way up to the wooden decking at the very top, finally stopping when it reaches an area of private woodland.
While I was there, the bird feeders were attracting a variety of small visitors, including a chaffinch and a long-tailed tit; apparently the first of this winter. By now, Mrs H will have made a note of him in her bird journal!
This cheeky fellow was sitting about a third of the way up...
...whilst this fellow was hiding, much closer to the top; made by Mr H and positioned as a surprise for those people who come during the 'Open Gardens' event.
Even in the depths of winter, this garden is attractive, but to see it in its late spring glory, click here.
