This garden is arguably the best examples of the 18th century garden style known as English Landscape Garden. This is made of a hugh man-made lake, temples, picturesque views all created from scratch.

The dead oak is makes this view so amazing. That's a centuries old English oak decomposing in a dignified manner. So beautiful.

Both Frank & I have a book on English Gardens with this exact view on the cover sans a peacock.

Although we saw some outstanding displays of Rhododendrons of every color, there wasn't any long perennial beds or other annuals apart from the Meadows.
