  1. Coton Manor sounds idyllic…Lovely to vicariously visit a garden the writer is so familiar with…Have yet to experience a bluebell wood…hope to before too long..That copper urn is somehow evocative of unhurried bee buzz quiet, still summer afternoons of the 19th century.. Surely Proust is sitting languidly somewhere nearby. ..Thanks for sharing. Really enjoy ed your ovservations, as usaual : )

  3. Thanks for sharing your visit to this beautiful garden; living in Italy I have to admit that the one thing I really miss is the possibility of visiting gardens; the only one worth visiting here are historic; they are wonderful for structural inspiration but not for the planting. Do you find that you learn even more from a garden or planting scheme that you don’t like – I do..

    • We’ve just come back from a holiday in Rome. you are right- very structural. Wonderful fountains. We managed to find lots of wild flowers though, and we were so new to Italy, that the lemon trees and olive groves were still wow moments for us. Yes, I learn from visiting the gardens- what works and what should work- but doesn’t and the reasons why. It’s fascinating unpicking the thinking behind garden planting schemes. My favourites at home are the ones that happen by accident.
