The cat lead the way, but first he wanted to stop and read the sign!
|Like me, Christopher Lloyd had a love of sausage dogs although I have never owned one. I just love their short legs and iconic shape. I wonder if you can see the sausage dog made from pebbles in the patio?|
Great Dixter is yet another inspirational English garden to visit. It challenged my ideas of how a garden should be and how colours and plants should be mixed. Some of the individual gardens were so jam packed with plants it made my head spin and I couldn't help but smile as I tried to absorb the combinations. The garden reinvigorated my interest in evening primrose with it's heady, 'eye closing moment', scent along with the untrendy 'straw flower' which I shall have on my list for the cutting garden next year. I think I will need another visit at a different time of year to really appreciate this complex garden to it's full.
