An Artist’s Garden

 Tuesday 10th July at 10.30 am


 The distinguished painter, Janet Boulton, has agreed to open her garden in Spring Road, Abingdon, to very small groups of our members.

 The garden (4 1/2 x 30 1/2 m) behind a Victorian terrace house, narrow with steps.  Begun in 1980 it has been influenced by the gardens Janet Boulton has painted – Rosemary Verey’s Barnsley House, Villa la Pietra in Florence, Ian Hamilton Finlay’s Little Sparta in Scotland and more recently the Cow Mead Allotments in Oxford.   Predominantly green it contains numerous sculptures with inscriptions relating to art, garden history and the human spirit.  This garden is celebrated for its contribution to the art of small garden design and is the subject of a number of films and features in garden magazines.

 For further information about Janet Boulton and her work please see

 £5 donation to Macmillan Nurses is requested.
