I took 80 photos today but when I got back and downloaded them, this one struck me more than the others. We were at Stanway House and Gardens, the one with the 200′ fountain which ‘plays’ twice a day, twice a week. It would have been easy to post a pic of that. and I probably will, but this one was different. I suppose it represents everything I love about established gardens in country homes……mystery, solidity, and in some cases, absurdity.I cannot imagine how much it would cost to build this palladian doorway today but whatever it was, it would be worth it.
It is demanding you walk through it, beautiful!
