At the gardens, Imogen found a fantastic Tree House and had great fun playing on it. There was also lots of running about and peeping around and over the pieces of art.

I love the expression on her face here
going down the slide

There were also these pieces - these are just a couple of them and I really liked the way they look and were placed around the gardens. There was a great one under a tree which I took a (lost) picture of with Imogen sitting in the same pose - one to re-create next visit!

A great day out at a fantastic gardens, finished off with a lovely New Forest Ice Cream, I can thoroughly recommend the Pistachio flavour - yum.


  1. What an amazing place! A shame it's nowhere near us, Max would love it.

  2. Hi Jacqui, it's not far from Basingstoke - the gardens are near a place called Romsey, not far from Winchester.
    I thought of you when posting these, as I loved seeing your pictures of the Jupiter gardens. It's great to see art in a garden environment, and the Hillier gardens are lovely too.

  3. Hi, I run the company that built the tree house at Hillier Gardens. I love the images you have taken of your daughter playing on the structure. I was wondering whether you would be prepared to let me use them on our website to show off the project?

    Please let me know and I will download them from your blog. Alternaitvely if you have any other nice images you would be happy for us to post on our website you can contact me at
