I’ve become a little obsessed with this spot, it’s an old show garden that was established by a wealthy land owner almost a century ago but has been left to itself. Blackberries have overgrown its entrance the paths are half covered and its footbridge is falling down. It also includes this great little water feature.I’ve been back half a dozen times now as its only a few minutes from where I teach on Thursday and I can get there and back in a free period. I’ve trimmed back undergrowth, removed rocks and even hacked away at a root with an axe that had half overgrown one of the tiers and was interrupting the flow in what I felt was a photographically displeasing way. I’ve shot it in different light, different flow levels and then shazam different seasons with the autumn colour totally transformed the whole scene.
