Mrs OR's Purple Garden Period.
The eagle eyed may note large changes in the garden. The last frame is a big clue! The flower circle is Mrs OR's long wanted "moon gate". It creates a break and room feel to the walk along the terrace garden.south side. The holly thug has been tamed and now hosts a climbing rose which will be high with profligate blooms by June end. We hope!
The taming of the holly has also allowed "Beaky's garden", (named after the part hidden, small iron bird in the copper beech), to become more of a feature to linger in than when dominated by a less than lovely holly tree.
Sure makes more sense than anything emanating from Brussels and our idiots in the Brussels-on- the- Thames enclave of traitors and quislings to our heritage.
