We visited Howick on a perfectly calm sunny day last week and as a result got to see the gardens in their absolutely best setting! The bog garden was in full bloom and the rhododendrons and azaleas were so colourful and scented however best of all was that Lady Howick's private garden was open and so we sat on one of the benches for a while in the sun just looking at all the plants in flower and listening to the birds and bees humming around - absolute bliss. We also had lunch in the tearoom and that was also a real treat - an absolutely fantastic quiche which I couldn't finish as it was so big - nom nom nom!! All in all, I can recommend Howick as a great day out. In addition, Cragside was also another one we visited and it's another fabulous garden in the area.
