Highnam Court Gardens


Taking advantage of some pretty decent weather for a change last weekend, we visited a local country house here in Gloucestershire, Highnam Court. We'd long wanted to have a look around the place and, as the famous gardens were open in aid of the Cobalt Unit ( a fantastic charity ), we went along to give our support and have a walk and a picnic in the grounds.


Highnam Court is a beautiful manor house with some gorgeous landscaped gardens, ranging in style from the more formal, typically Victorian gardens, to ones in the Italian and Japanese styles.


The gardens are home to many eye-catching sculptures, some in a classical style...


And some more modern...


It's a beautiful, well-designed place with so many interesting features around every corner - well worth a visit if you're in the area...

















A perfect way to spend a warm Sunday afternoon: in an English country garden.

( The rest of my weekend was a bit more rock 'n' roll, but that's the subject of my next post... )

Your photos are always so lovely. Since I can't see it for myself just yet, I live vicariously through the pictures. =)

Thanks Mickey, you're very kind. I'm just lucky to have so many beautiful landscapes nearby... and just point and click :-)
