I decided to post about the Rose garden next in my Nymans posts as I have been following my own 2 rose borders in my End of month view posts this year, and the following post will be my EoMV post.
The Rose Garden is an enclosed circular garden with many paths and a fountain in it’s centre, I do not know a lot about these things but I think it is what could be called traditional, there was not a huge flush of rose blooms in late July but that did not matter, when I visited in February I could clearly see across the garden and the design, however in July with all the foliage I could not, which was nice, paths leading around corners and to junctions with that ‘which way shall I go now’ feel, it all adds a bit of mystery,
I was interested to see what was planted under the roses, lavender, nepeta and geraniums, a wide variety of geraniums, all plants giving a wide variety of foliage,
there were several arches and some obelisks, clematis was used as well as roses to climb these,
I am sorry about the quality of the photos but I foolishly took photos with the tablet thingy, thinking I was going to publish a post while I was in Sussex, what a silly old woman I was ……
I took photos of the name plates after the photo of the rose so I would have the names, but I can’t read the next one,
