The sundial circle, with view leading through the Ilex avenue to the walled garden
The shrub roses had mostly gone over, but the hips were round and red and nearly ripe.
'Bulb' - a sculpture by Rachel Ramchurch. I enjoyed looking at different views through the hole in the sculpture.
This strange looking chap was in the walled garden, guarding the waterlily fountain with three colleagues.

Along with all the big views, and obvious statuary, it was also good to search out small and interesting details...
Not a very good photo but the cast iron pipework in the Vinery was good to see - proper engineering.
Moss on stone in the Rootree
At the end of the Fish Garden were headstones in memories of pets, mostly horses. The originals were in faded stone but had been transcribed onto plaques.
Some were quite twee...
Oh, there's a house there as well.
The plant sales area is very good - lots of interesting plants.
I'll have to visit more gardens - it has really given me a different perspective on views and on features. I may not have 8 acres, but even so, there are some ideas I can use.
