Frogmore House & Gardens, Windsor, Berkshires, England
.

If the name Frogmore House sounds somewhat familiar to you, even if you are a non-royalist,  it is because it has been all over the news. Lately, it is the place where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be holding their wedding reception this evening. Also their official engagement photos were taken here.
.

Frogmore House with it’s 33 acres of private gardens belongs to the British monarchy. It was built over 300 years ago by King George III as a retreat for his wife, Queen Charlotte. It is widely believed, though not proven, that Queen Charlotte was Britain’s first Black Queen. Though German, her mixed race heritage is thought to have come directly from the Portuguese Royal House.
.

It is well known for its beautiful park and gardens (the name Frogmore comes from the great amount of frogs found in the marshy areas of the park). Frogmore has over 4000 different plants and trees, lakes, bridges, follies and a summerhouse in the form of a Gothic ruin (pictured above). Queen Victoria was a frequent visitor to the gardens, finding them uplifting after the death of her beloved Prince Albert.  As a result, they are both buried here at the Royal Mausoleum.
.

The Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson, the only other American divorcée to have married an English Prince, is also buried at the Frogmore Royal Burial Ground.©️

Château de Corabœuf, Ivry-en-Montagne, Burgundy Côte d'Or, France
.
I love this darling little hunting pavilion in the grounds of Château de Corabœuf. The façade, with its swags and oval medallion,  could indicate the presence of heavier ornamentation and surface decoration at one time. The sides and rear of the structure, however, are entirely bare of any appliqués or onlays.©️

Broughton Grange, Broughton, Branbury, England
.
Tom Stuart-Smith has created a harmonious field of exploding colour, texture, and scale, with herbaceous borders, grasses, perennials, hedges and tall plants, surrounding a long, narrow body of water, all thriving in this beautiful, bold mess, laid out within a walled garden made up of three terraces.
“Mood", he says, is the most important element in a garden.©️

Three for the price of one? These gorgeous cottages are all available at the same time and could be converted to make one beautiful family home. They were previously farm workers cottages and are on Water Lane in Ashdon, near Saffron Walden. ⁣#cottage #countryhomes #englishhomes #housegoals #dreamhouse #countrylife #countryliving #decor #homesweethome #serendipityloves #serendipityinspires #englishcountryhomes #kerbappeal #savoyhomesandgardens #theartofslowliving #simplepleasures #enjoythelittlethings #enjoylife #enjoythejourney #may #potd #thegoodlife #essex #renovation #renovationproject #saffronwalden

Cliveden House & Gardens, Buckinghamshire, England .
.
The Parterre garden at Cliveden House is well known as one of the largest in Europe, measuring approximately four acres. It’s scale is quite impressive— note the two figures walking on the left of the parterre!
.

Laid out in 1848 by Head Gardner John Fleming, the overall design features eight wedge shapes laid out in an alternating sequence pattern. The simplicity of the boxwood border allows for approx. 60,000 colourful plants and bulbs to be planted yearly inside the beds. This style of planting developed by Fleming came to be known as 'carpet-bedding'.
.
The sculpture at the far end of the parterre is a bronze cast of the original, The Rape of Proserpina, c.1565. The original was brought from Villa Borghese in Rome, in 1896, though the weather in England was deemed to harsh for the significant work of art to remain outdoors. Since 1942, the original resides under better protection at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
.
Cliveden House @clivedenhouse is now a stunning hotel & spa, slowly erasing from our memories its connection to the notorious Profumo Affair.©️

Farleigh House, Farleigh Wallop, Basingstoke, England
.
A flock of steel seagulls created by English sculptor and environmental artist Diana Maclean, fly over this amazing wave hedge of Buxus sempervirens created by Andrew Woolley, the head gardener at Farleigh House.
.

This 4,000 acre estate and magnificent gardens have been in the same family since the 15th century. The grounds also contain a lake with koi carp, an impressive yew allée, a stunning glasshouse, an English rose garden and a ha-ha.©️

Château de la Ballue, Bazouges-la-Pèrouse, France
.
Named after the landscape architect who laid out the gardens at La Ballue over 30 years ago, the F. Hébert Stevens Garden is meticulously maintained & made up of shapes that have been reduced to their most basic, yet still beautiful forms.
.

Topiaries, like the one in the image above, serves as the backdrop for a dramatic play of light that is constantly changing throughout the garden in the daytime, as well as during different seasons.©️

The Knot Garden at Bourton House, Bourton-on-the-Hill, Gloucestershire, England
.
The gardens at Bourton House have been hailed as the most award-winning manor garden in the Cotswolds. .
The house and its immediate surroundings have been around since the 16th century.
.

In 1983, the home and gardens were purchased by a family who began the painstaking job of converting the seemingly neglected garden into the masterpiece it is today.
.
I am in awe of how well thought out the scale of this garden is in comparison to the house. Brilliant!©️
