When I visited Hidcote, most of my photographs didn’t turn out. Apparently, I was so excited to be in the garden that I moved onto my next shot before giving my camera time to finish. You can only imagine how I felt when I downloaded the photographs and found over half of them were blurry. Arg! Since then, I’ve learned not to rush the shot. What a painful lesson.
Clearly, the solution is another trip to England. In the meantime, here’s the shots that turned out ok. I hope you enjoy Hidcote Part II.
This is the Stilt garden. I love the shape of the lawn between the trees.
The garden path leads your eye to the urn in the distance.
View looking at the Rose garden toward the new orchard.
These beehives are used to pollinate the new orchard and surrounding flower gardens.
This area of the garden reminds me of my Annabelle hydrangeas at home.
A beautifully lush border with spider wort on the left and azaleas on the right.
Apparently they have lawyers working for the National Trust! If you watch the bees, you’ll soon understand the phase “Bee Line”.
Here’s a close up shot of the purple spider wort.
I love this Cranesbill. What a lush plant combination.
A view of an amazing yew hedge.
The Garden yard with its tropically inspired border.
Here’s a great example of a garden focal point. Your eye is led down the allee of trees towards the sculpture in the distance. What a beautiful scene.
