But this time is was muxh more interesting.
This time, I found the emphasis was all about the wonderful plants.
There were lots of lovely species that I was familiar with but even more that I hadn't seen before. Certainly read about in books but hadn't seen flowering before.
Being mid spring, all sorts of interesing things were in full bloom.
Granted the planting was still a bit sparse in some places... but am I being a bit hard.....?
Of course like everywhere else, the roses were beautiful. The peony were just starting to really bloom......unlike in France where they were in full blazing finishing of blooms....a bit warmer in France I think
The overall feel of the garden was beautiful, peaceful, wild, gentle and rather countrified.
There were views and vistas and walks and arbours, well proportions garden rooms, colour and interest and wildmeadows and countryside.
Overall conceptually quite lovely with areas of lushness.
So a very different garden in the springtime.
