As I used to live in nearby Horrabridge, I have been to this garden many times, often with a thermos, sandwiches, fruit and a book - to sit on 'my' bench in the little walled garden. (If anyone was already sitting there, I confess to lingering nearby, casting irritated looks their way until they felt it best to move on!)
But my son and daughter-in-law had never been before and absolutely loved it.
These first photos were taken by my son, on his phone, and are of far better quality than I could manage with my camera, so my thanks to you, son. xx
You'll see the difference when I post mine!
I apologise for these 'sideways' photos - no matter how I try to edit them, I can't get them the right way up!
I can do this - !!!!!
And now with my own camera . . . .
Oh look! Upright trees!
I love Acers but they are not at their most colourful best until October; all being well, I shall be back then to see and photograph much more vibrant colours.
'MY' seat, claimed with my rucksack while I take photos.
It was a hot, sultry afternoon and I wish I could convey the sounds of birdsong and the low humming of many bees as they busied themselves about the garden.
Our final stop was at the house, for tea and cake served on the terrace.
