The Pond in the Spring

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gertrude Jekyll laid out a varied and interesting garden that gives examples of a wide spectrum of her prodigious talents. To the West of the house lies Jekyll's only surviving and faithfully restored Wild garden. It is traversed by mown grass paths which meander through longer grass, rambling roses, shrubs, bamboo and a small copse of Walnut trees. These paths lead towards the pond which is surrounded by rocks and planted with indigenous and water-loving plants.

 

 

" Planting ground is painting the landscape with living things "
