We entered at the side of the house through the West Flower Garden and were met with a riot of colour. It was beautiful and quite different to how the garden has looked on previous visits.
The formal garden at the front of the property was planted with what I think were white and pink Cosmos flowers. I was a bit unsure about the choice of the tall white flowers but the effect of the pale colours against the building was really lovely.
We walked through the grounds past various statues. The statues remind me of the stone angels from Dr Who. Blink and they'll kill you! LOL
At the end of the long canal is the domed pavilion (originally called the Banqueting House). We didn't go inside this time as we've been inside quite a few times before.
Close by was the Bowllng Green House.
My favourite building is the the Bath House. In summer it is surrounded by flowering Rhododendron.
...... and other stunning plants.
