Another from one of my favourite haunts, Scotney Castle, one of the Seven Wonders Of The Weald - I cropped this one square because there was just too much foliage to the side and the framing didn't look quite right to me.
Often described as the most romantic garden in England, the ruins of the small 14th-century castle are reflected in its moat, forming the backdrop to a garden of breathtaking beauty and considerable importance to the garden-historian.
The castle was built as a fortified manor house towards the end of the 14th century. For 350 years it was the home of the Darell family. They sold the property in the middle of the 18th century. The estate was bought by Edward Hussey in 1778. The garden was made in the 'Romantic Picturesque' style in the middle of the 19th century by Edward Hussey, grandson of the purchaser, with advice from William Sawrey Gilpin.
Thanks as always for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome
