The pic above was taken earlier today at Nymans Gardens in Handcross. I’ve never been there before but it was a beautiful place – crocuses, daffodils, lots of jackdaws quacking restlessly in the windy boughs. Now that Leonardslee gardens in Lower Beeding “has been sold to an international businessman”, it’s the closest ornamental garden to my house. And I do so love an ornamental garden. Preferably with a dovecote.
