In response to those who queried the pink flower in my last post
It is a Rock Rose
I grew it from a cutting taken from a friend's garden
After 200 years, this garden at Leonardslee is often described as the
"most beautiful landscape garden in Europe in May"
I think I would agree with that.
We will walk the many paths that wind around this 200 acres of paradise.We are going to be walking up and down the steep slopes and around the 7 lakes at the bottom.
We will walk the wooded slopes steeped in Azaleas, the Magnolias and Camelias having finished and enjoy the
contrast of the wild Bluebells.
We will not miss the reflections in the lakes,
the Philip Jackson sculptures and the
wallabies brought to the garden 100 years ago as a way of keeping the grass clipped.
The white wallabies are a rare species.
They are moved around the garden as necessary
He's a saint actually to hang around while I do all this photography!
