Houghton Hall & Gardens, Norfolk, England
.

Sybil. One word. A one word hedge?
This famous copper beech hedge is located at Houghton Hall in Norfolk, considered to be England's finest Palladian house. David Cholmondeley, current Marquis of Houghton Hall, with Anya Gallaccio, created this tribute to his grandmother, the late dowager Duchess, Sybil Sassoon. She was a major arts patron, among her many talents, and this is a replica of her signature.
.

Lord Cholmondeley has chosen to honour her quite fittingly with this living sculpture. The beech hedge harks back to more traditional gardens, whilst the flourish signature is a more contemporary concept.
.

Under Cholmondeley's discerning eye, the gardens at Houghton have become the perfect backdrop for famous contemporary art installations. Among them James Turrell and Richard Long. .

Jardins du Château de la Bourdaisière, Montlouis-sur-Loire, France
.
I have tremendous respect for well thought out garden design, where the impulse to fill up all available space is reigned in.
.

Château de la Bourdaisière, dates from the 15th century, and is set in a park of over 150 acres. It was built by King Francis I for his mistress. Years later a future mistress of King Louis IV would be born here. Now a lovely hotel with beautiful French, formal gardens, where guests are encouraged to meander through the grounds at their leisure.
.

An important lesson to take away from this image is to remember that the spaces we leave empty are as important as the ones we fill up.©

Madonna di San Biagio, Montepulciano, Tuscany, Italy
.
.

The church of San Biagio is one of the most peaceful places I have ever visited. The breathtaking quiet and calm surrounding this temple is an awe inspiring experience.
.

Located at the foot of the Montepulciano hill, one arrives at this golden travertine temple by a driveway lined with cypress trees and an idyllic meadow of green. No fancy gardens or intricate plants and design; I found it's beauty in it's utter simplicity.
.

Considered a late renaissance masterpiece due to its scale and proportions, the church is a Greek cross plan. Begun in 1518, it is built on the remains of the site of the Pieve San Biagio, after a miracle is said to have occurred there regarding a Madonna, whose image appears on a wall fresco of the original Pieve. The plan was inspired by Bramante's plans of St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome.

Abbey House Gardens, Malmesbury, Wiltshire, England
.

You can't swing a dead cat 'round the English countryside without hitting some grand old manor steeped in British eccentricities: history, death, ghosts, royalty and naked gardening!
.

Malmesbury Abbey, whose original structure was built in the 7th century, and it's spectacular gardens covering 5 acres, has all that, and then some: King Athelstan, the first king of England, and one of the greatest Anglo- Saxon kings, is buried somewhere in the garden. In the 11th century the monk Elimer of Malmesbury, attempted to fly by attaching wings to his arms and leaping off the roof, breaking both legs. His ghost has been spotted hobbling about the abbey. Two saints were thrown down a well and their bodies were never recovered. Saints.....!
.

If the thought of encountering the owners gardening in the buff bothers you (or the opposite), then make sure you don't miss the sign up front. It displays what day they're up gardening.©

Thyme Walk, The Garden at Highgrove, Tetbury, England
.

Prince Charles' dedication and elegant designs have changed Highgrove since his purchase of this estate in 1980. These once unkempt yew topiaries, allowed to grow at will, were meticulously turned into a display of 19th century desserts, under his careful guidance.
.

Appropriately named Thyme Walk due to the twenty varieties of this herb planted here. The aromatic foliage of thyme, which has grown around and under the stones of the Walk, releases the aroma when stepped on. Thyme is an ideal grass alternative, which requires little water, flourishes amongst the cracks between the stones and has a tiny, delicate flower.
.

At the end of the allée is a life-size bronze Borghese Gladiator, a gift from Lord Cholmondeley (of #HoughtonHall, which I love both inside & out), flanked by two large Italian urns that originally might have held either olive oil or sherry. These urns initially appeared at a local pub in Tetbury, having been mailed to 'Prince Charles, Tetbury, UK'. Royalty Protection must have had a field day with that!© .

Egham, Surrey, England
.

Far from your average hotel garden are the extensive, formal gardens at the Great Fosters Hotel in Egham, Surrey. .

The beautiful arts & crafts style parterre & topiary garden are considered one of the finest in Europe. Framed on three sides by a Saxon moat and designed to resemble a Persian rug, the meticulously kept gardens were laid out in 1918 by
W H Romaine Walker, and have recently undergone extensive renovations. .

At the center of the parterre is the Drake Sundial, which is believed to have been a gift from Sir Francis Drake himself and dates back to 1585. .

Today, the stately home built in 1550, originally as a royal hunting lodge, is a romantic, luxury hotel. As of a few weeks ago, they have once again retained their #MichelinStar for 2018, which was first awarded in 2016.©

I'd love to do the same in my garden— walk by and catch a glimpse of the view, while the focus remains on my own garden. Except I live in the city.....so my view would be quite interesting— neighbours in compromising positions & all that.
Not that my neighbour's aren't the loveliest of people, of course, whatever they may be up to.... (love you, R.F!). .

If documentation dating back to 1745 described the two identical yew hedges lining the driveway of Blickling Hall as already being quite high, one can only imagine the sheer size of them now. .
They are pruned every September and it takes two people 14 days to complete the task.©
