For a long time now I have been wanting to visit this unique garden -famous for its three hundred year old topiary- which is situated fairly near to Kendal in the Lakes.
Finally last week at the end of April we made it!
It did not disappoint.
This garden is very special. It is a real visual treat. A very gem of a garden.
(Although sadly , the day was overcast for my photos)
These yew and box trees take four gardeners over a month to trim.
Each box bed in this section of the garden was inlaid with violas.
Again each flower was different.
I love them.
I want to make myself a felt corsage modeled on these little gems!
Here we arrive at another part of the formal garden - its so sculptural that its almost difficult to know from what angle to view it.
And then I saw and fell in love with this one!
How is this achieved? So clever.
This garden and Elizabethan house are a must visit!
They are truly wonderful.
The garden a triumph!
