>I have recently returned from a much needed break in deepest Somerset where the cider flows and the usually tender plants flourish, making it feel like someone transplanted Dickens England somewhere in Florida.
Whilst there, apart from some very beautiful long country walks, we enjoyed a trip to nearby Hestercombe Gardens.
As it is a beauty to behold, most of this blog will remain pictorial.

 The theme for the gardens seemed to be a number of exquisite buildings positioned to utilise the magnificent views,not only of the gardens themselves but also of the surrounding countryside.

 Due to the continuing restoration work, a lot of the buildings were very new in appearance. This felt a little confusing but given time they should ‘age’ well to fit in again.

 Then to the amazing formal gardens, designed by the most famous partnership in English garden design , Jekyll and Lutyens.
