I think that this will be my penultimate Barnsley House upload. The garden was in immaculate condition due to the close and expert attention of the gardeners.
I spoke with the gentleman in this image - he is I believe the head gardener, and explained that he had three others working with him (or perhaps that he was one of three!) He would like one more!
Here he is turning his attention to the box topiary behind a sturdy stone seat.
Ah well another week is under way... we have a little light rain here in the NE of England - not enough yet to help the bone dry garden.
Thanks for your interest and comments,
