Synopsis
This feature, photographed on a December dawn, illustrates how the low winter sun and frost emphasise the garden’s structure and planting - with light catching the colourful branches of Carpinus 'Frans Fontaine' in the Rill Garden and Tilia platyphyllos 'Rubra' in the Lime Allee, as well as accentuating the old foliage and seed heads in the herbaceous borders of the Sundial Garden and Hot Garden. Frost has also settled on the shrubs and grasses in the Summerhouse Garden, including: Miscanthus sinensis ‘Gracillimus’;Phormium – P. tenax ‘Variegata’; Melianthus major; and Elaeagnus pungens 'Maculata'. The structural planting beside the house is also pictured, such as: standard box balls (Buxus), yew pyramids and hedge (Taxus baccata); Magnolia grandiflora 'Exmouth'; the vestiges of summer roses 'Gloire de Dijon' and Zephirine Drouhin'; and a carpet of Hedera helix 'Hibernica'. Other areas of the garden pictured include: The Font Garden where box balls are crisp with frost; Alice’s Garden with Prunus ‘The Bride’ and Cericidiphyllum japonicum ‘Pendulum’; and the Font Garden, which has tall yew pyramids and a frozen pond filled with coloured cobbles and autumn leaves.
