I know I am on a bit of a roll~
this is Great Dixter also in East Sussex.
Home of the late and very great Christopher Lloyd
"Christopher Lloyd was one of the most inspired plantsmen and garden writers of the past century. He spent his lifetime practicing and refining his art at Great Dixter, his family’s rambling Sussex Manor House in Southeast England. "
This is a place I have been longing to visit, why has it taken me so long? My mind was made up once I read the article in the March issue of World of Interiors
What a delicious place this is if, like me you love shaggy colourful gardens that look effortless not spotless and borders that evolve through the seasons with brilliant planting schemes. Much credit to Fergus Garrett and his team.
(Brilliant article by Fergus here I love the description of his relationship with Christopher, wonderful honest writing.)
This garden provoked such a strong joyous reaction in me that a lot of "twirling" took place.
My family will be smiling at this admission!
TWIRLING ~ distinctive behaviour of S-J DTL when overcome with a sudden rush of happiness and joy. A spontaneous on the spot spin followed by a series of small hops/skips and jumps.
Have a brilliant weekend wherever you are,
ps. Good news, It's raining at last!
