The garden is in full English Country garden summer spectacular mode. The roses grow particularly well here, and are putting on a real show.
Even in the non-cultivated sections there's plenty of things putting on a show.
This Clematis is tucked away in the hedge, who knows who it got there...
I'm particularly captivated by this combination of red, orange, and green. When you look closely it shows up in lots of places. These are the seed heads on the Gunera plant, but it's uncannily similar to the colours on these sycamore leaves.
They're also present on this sycamore key that had fallen off before properly ripening.
While the garden was beautiful to look around it certainly wasn't a haven of peace and quiet. The military jets were busy doing training flights.
The chickens were also making their presence felt.
