The Gardens at Farleigh House – Part 2

The first two segments of my visit to Farleigh House may be found

here

and here

Today I’ll finish up the tour with the remainder of the gardens…

A welcome spot for a bit of respite while gardening…

Behind the little shelter, a well on the grounds is embellished with a most interesting grotto-like decoration…

image

A serpentine walk…

image

Finishes at a sculpture pond…

image

Evoking a sense of serenity…

image

image

Beyond the pond another walk…

image

Leads to a pair of wrought iron gates…

image

That open onto a lake, which Mr. Wooley promised would be ready for perusal upon our next visit!  The intricacy of the iron work was amazing…

image

A perfectly pruned peacock brought a smile…

image

Another nod to ancestor, Sir Isaac Newton…

image

And our circle of the property was complete with a return to the house and car park…

image

Wow!

  1. Holy Moly! Such beautiful grounds!! I’ve been away and missed your previous posts. I’m going to go back and look at them now. Have a great weekend!

  2. That first shot of the cross was stunning. So peaceful, I could almost smell the clean grass. What an amazing place!
