The summer may be officially over, but nobody told the gardens around Berkshire. They're still looking lovely in the September sun and in many places you can see (and taste) the kitchen garden produce being put to good use.

Sandham Memorial Chapel's garden in September 

Sandham Memorial Chapel near Newbury is a hidden gem. The recently restored garden of reflection is lovingly tended by volunteers on closed days so that you can soak up the September sun in peace.

The last of Cliveden’s summer schemes are in flower around the estate. In The Long Garden there’s a sea of 10,000 hot pink Begonias, whilst in The Rose Garden there are 900 roses in their final bloom of season.
