This garden was built in three separate gardening eras. The first is Georgian, then Victorian and the third is Edwardian. The last one is a Gertrude Jekyll design.
Lutyens was the architect for the building pictured below and all the rock work around the sunken garden. Gertrude soften all the hard lines and sharp rocks with an amazing simple palette that works so well. It rivals Sissinghurst in grandeur and historical significance.
The day was partly cloudy with rain showers although we never had to seek shelter. Like a good garden, it had plenty of places to escape a thunderstorm. Some of the photos are taken in full sun and the colors are harsh. Many were taken in foggy grey light and the colors are close to true.
She had a great understanding of color combinations and seasonal timing.
