Biddulph Grange Garden 3/7

Turning through 180 degrees from yesterdays post one walks down through a terraced area called the Araucaria Parterre to the edge of the large lake which is very well stocked with fish. As you can see the edge of the lake is beautifully planted with a fine selection of shrubs and small trees. This is very much a green garden rather than lots of flower beds.

Yes this is very green hereabouts

It seems very peaceful!
Brian Walbey: Being a midweek visit most of the people there were retired folks like us, I guess it gets more crowded at weekends with families, but that's when we retired folks stay away of course!

Just one Prunus Nigra to break the green. And a dam full of fish. A good recipe for lazy summer weekends.
Brian Walbey: It's very much a foliage rather than flower garden. There is a fine Pinetum which i am showing on Sunday to sit and relax among the trees.
What a lovely path leading down to this smallish, intimate lake Brian.
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it Chad, and lots of big fish in the lake to look at.
It certainly is a study in green. Can you imagine the first weeks after the new leaves emerge in spring??
Brian Walbey: It's very much a foliage rather than flower garden. Whilst my favourite colour is blue I do enjoy the greens of spring and early summer.
