Low Light and Autumnal Mists
After a period of high temperatures and very little rain for some while, this last week has seen a significant drop in temperature and over 4 inches of rain fall in a few days. Although the quantity of rain in such a short space of time was a bit unwelcome this has all resulted in some remarkable misty mornings which are a true signature of autumn.
As you will see from the following images these misty mornings can offer fleeting moments of extraordinary beauty and calm.
Laid out in what is known as prairie style, the new planting in the Dragon Garden was only completed in May this year and in spite of the sometimes testing summer time conditions has grown remarkably well. We are delighted with progress so far and it is already providing a flavour of the displays to come in future years.
