We open the door to the walled garden. A gasp… a hidden world of fresh herbaceous planting and formal hedging.
This secret and secluded space has walls-a-plenty, studded with the nails of a dozen past gardeners, making nectarines and peaches form fanned shapes to ripen fruit and please the eye.
Our modern day take is to create avenues and leafy canopies, directing you through and offering shade within the acred oasis.
A mulberry remains as the sole survivor from history, losing a limb in its middle age, it leans… a lopsided link to the past.
