Lovely garden Brian! It makes me yearn for the spring and summer months smile
Brian Walbey: I took so many pictures in this garden Frances, I wish I could show them all on SC.but it would get boring after a while.

Those beds look like they would be good for the veggies, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I seem to remember they did have vegetables growing in one area.

A delightful garden Brian and a fine shot! Great to see pictures of summer smile

It looks very well designed Brian. A lovely looking garden
Brian Walbey: It is a fine garden Janet, this is far from being the best bit though.
Love walled gardens Brian so I will enjoy this
Brian Walbey: I hope you do Bill, this is just a taster. I have done a full length A/V.of this garden which I have shown to several local groups, sadly I don't have any way of showing on SC.
Impressive.

This looks very grand. I like the lilies on the pond. I can almost feel the warmth of a late summer's day on my back.
Brian Walbey: There wa a fine show of lilies on this very fine afternoon.

Such vibrant colours, Brian
Brian Walbey: Wait till you see the flowers later in the week Lisl.
It's a lovely garden. It looks well maintained by not overly so which is much nicer than the very formal gardens.
Brian Walbey: A very fine garden as you will see later in the week.
Frances beat to a very precise choice of words - lovely capture Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred, I can remember it was a warm, sunny July afternoon. We didn't get many of those did we!!
Summer, sunshine and a walled garden is a combination hard to beat, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Graeme, a garden well worth visiting.

A bright spot for a winter's day, Brian.

A lovely garden Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mike, well worth a visit if you ever get up near Cromer or Sheringham.
This is surely maintained with gardeners. I would love some help to make mine look like this.
Brian Walbey: Yes there is quite a team of gardeners Mary, it covers quite a large area.
