Things seemed quite dry then but the last month of heat must have had quite an effect on the gardens.
You may recall that we came to this house and gardens in February and bravely walked around them in the pouring rain. We then decided to return when the garden was in full bloom.
Each garden or "room" has a name and is set out in a different style. This is the Lavender Court and Folly.
The Vine Walk.
You will notice that I managed to find quite a few framed views such as this view through the Lavender Court to the Vine Walk.
Then this peep through an archway into the Pompeian Garden.
The Reflecting Pool has been created where the family swimming pool used to be. It is apparently possible to see Crested Great Newts here.
Looking through to the Theatre Garden.
The Herbaceous Borders were perhaps my favourite garden.
