The garden feels like a little secret, a set of little rooms leading the eye on and on. The main show is the unusual water rill that cascades down, flanked by heathers, grasses and herbs and attracting the attention of children with small sticks - a race down the rapids.
Some ducky friends dibbled and dabbled under apple trees and my boy was a happy little sprite, a touch of the autumn magic perhaps?
