A frosty winter morning in a country garden designed by Harold Peto.

Heale Garden is a historic country garden in Wiltshire surrounded by a tributary of the River Avon. An authentic Japanese bridge crosses the river to the teahouse in the woodland garden, surrounded by snowdrops and winter aconites. A large walled vegetable garden reveals its strong structure in winter with a tunnel of espaliered apple tress leading to large ancient clipped box balls. The riverside woodland walk is also a mass of snowdrops in late winter.
