The secret garden!

Article text
Last weekend we were asked to photographs the lovely Pearce family for an outdoor family photoshoot. They suggested a little place in Bledlow called Lyde Gardens, which I'd never heard of, so, praying for the rain to hold off for the morning, we headed to the venue, trusty sat-nav on duty. My brief reconnaissance of the location (using Google of course), didn't prepare me for this hidden treasure of rustic stone steps and wooden walkways meandering through a lovely sunken gardens full of beautiful plants and foliage. A great backdrop for some lovely portraits, although it was pretty dark down there!
It reminded me of how many hidden beauty spots we have in England, and how we often don't go investigating our local areas nearly enough to find them! I'll certainly be returning to Lyde Gardens again!
