Back to the Hampton Court Garden – not the one in London but the one in north Herefordshire.
The structure designed into the gardens here entices us to move on, to follow paths, to enter gateways, to sit and rest and to look at views.
Within the design plants sit comfortable and happy in their surroundings.
This wonderful garden is also about fun, that essential element that acts as the vehicle for children to become involved with gardens and gardening.
Not just children though – adults need fun in the garden too, especially Jude, the Undergardener.
Sculpture is an important feature of Hampton Court and is enjoyed by all ages. This piece features stained glass within a wooden obelisk,
Within the orchard this sculpture of a hare in its rusty finish attracts everyone for its beauty and charm.
We shall leave Hampton Court in the orchard a collection of heritage fruit trees and meadows, and with a wander around the potager.
And a piece of unintentional outdoor sculpture.
