I entered Mapperton Gardens as a visitor this week, accompanied by my little helper.
I was armed with my camera. But she saw things through different eyes with a pair of binoculars.
These are some of the things we found:
The north wing.
An ancient urn.
Snake's head fritillary.
Hellebores under the pergola.
A blossom-strewn path.
Textures and colours.
And, finally, thank goodness for binoculars used the wrong way round. My little helper would never have spotted it otherwise.
I'll keep you posted.
