Another beautiful garden visited, photographed and crossed off the list.

Borde Hill Garden

When we visited they had an exhibition of sculptures and the owl was one of my favourites.

It was a hot day so it was a good job we were allowed to take the Budster in with us. Below is the old potting shed. A derelict building now full up with plants and shrubs and little trees. Really loved the bricks against the greenery and that stone floor.

Some exotic borders lushly planted.

And roses galore complete with hidden arched seat.

Sumptuous Italian garden with box hedges and planters all round a sunken pool. It gave us a cooler spot to sit a while and soak up the quiet beauty.

Here’s another view of the pool from further back.

An amazing long herbaceous border contained by that stone wall.

A truly wonderful place full of little details and unusual features and a stunning house as a backdrop.

Recommended if you are ever in East Sussex.
