Evening in the garden at Agecroft.

Last of my pictures taken at Agecroft Hall.
One of my favorites to stop and ponder is the courtyard.
The balcony with the flowers over flowing.  Gorgeous!

Linden walk

A walk back to the knot garden.

See the peas growing up the trellis just right behind the gate at the pillar?

You can see the knot garden made up of herbs through the gate door.

Among the flowers were vegetables growing


onto rear of home's raised terrace

Overlooking the maze from the terrace

Couldn't resist snapping the tree with this beautiful bark.

So many garden rooms and terraces with statues and urns.

Datura or what our Mom used to call Gabrielle's Trumpet
I know they are poisonous if ingested but I grew up around these plants, picked the large flowers. Never ate one or even thought about doing so.  Many plants we grow in our gardens are poisonous.

Lower terrace with fountain

Espaliered tree

Boxwoods are lining walks and beds of flowers.
While taking this walk. We come upon this little sign tucked into the roses.

Fragrant magnolias

 Happy Friday

  7. Dearest Betsy,
    It was not only the painstaking job of rebuilding this manor, but for starting those original gardens around.
    Incredible for walking and pondering around there. It must be quite a job for keeping it all up.
    Thanks for sharing this with your readers.
