The Joyful Surprises of Spring | Tulip Season at Easton Walled Gardens

Nestled in the rolling countryside of Lincolnshire lies this beautiful estate, which I’ve been visiting with my family for the past seven years. Easton Walled Gardens; a nurturing sanctuary that sings with the seasons. I always look forward to our annual pilgrimage for the boost of creativity it generously grants me alongside my discoveries from within the inspiring gardens.

Our visit was during Tulip season and oh what a magical Spring-time display the Tulips and Daffodils gave us.

Being surrounded by hundreds of flowering spring bulbs in the cedar meadow felt like stepping into a painting. The gentle breeze carried their fragrance around the meadow so beautifully.

Who could forget this view of the Terraces, Rose meadow and Orchards. A space for slowing down and marvelling at the delights of nature.

A flurry of Narcissi within the majestic stone walls.

Weathered stone steps and terracotta planters providing a colourful kaleidoscope of Spring blooms.

The cottage garden was flowering in abundance with Tulips of so many colours. A magical sight under the Spring sunshine; I wandered back through this part of the garden several times.

Passing by the potting shed, I found myself appreciating the thoughtful little arrangement of Spring flowers. The use of broken terracotta planters dotted around the garden was particularly inspiring – a much needed reminder that they are still perfectly happy homes for plants!

Hues of blues and greens with Periwinkle and Muscari.

Pausing for a moment beside the glasshouses to check our map and smell the sunniest of flowers.

The perfect hidden corners for finding fairies with my three year old.

Taking a little peek at the glasshouses; there’s always something special hiding in here and this time we discovered some Ranunculus starting to pop with colour.

Dancing with my girl among the Spring blooms under pockets of sunshine.

Hellebores sheltering in the shadows of the stone boundaries followed by dancing daffodils beneath the sunshine filled garden beyond.

Seeking out the corners of the garden that have grown beautifully wild.
