• Bryan's Ground

    A day off on Monday & we went to see a local, well fairly local, garden at Bryan's Ground, near Presteigne. A superb 3 acre patch that has been evolving for a little over a century around an arts & crafts house built in 1912. This is not your usual formal, neatly manicured garden where a weed would be ashamed to show its face, but a glorious mixture of inspired planting, indulged colonisation, nooks, crannies, follies and sculptural fancies, richly interplanted with many fine trees and hedges, along with the mighty existing trees that must have cast their shadows across Bryan's Ground long before the house existed.

    The gardens are only open on Sunday and Monday afternoons between April and July, but I can't recommend them highly enough.
