Oh dear, I will have to retaliate now, wpn't I.
Seeing my garden through the eyes of someone else makes it look very pretty.

Hi Susan,
Once again, thanks for sharing some more fabulous photos of the quintessential English country garden and more insight to your delightful hosts.
For a moment there, I thought I was losing what's left of my mind. I knew I'd seen that video in your previous posting.
Cheerio, Gary

Suze said...

What a haven. And what a gorgeous spread on the table. Just beautiful.

Suz said...

oh thank you for posting this
I loved seeing and hearing Beloved and Friko and seeing Benno
They are blog treasures
and her garden is oh my gorgeous

I'm just speechless. After Friko's mumbling about her poor garden, I thought she might have - a poor garden! Oh, my goodness.

I'm reminded of a marvelous book called "The Impressionist Garden", which examines the development of such gardens as Monet's at Giverny. The garden as palette - that surely is part of what lies behind this beautiful place, whether intentionally or not.

Thank you so much for all the views in this post. I have read so many of Friko's posts about her garden, that it was a real treat to see your photos and video!

All so beautiful and, as Suze said-- oddly-- the way I imagined it and F., too! How wonderful that you got to meet Benno. Sigh.

Hi Susan .. such a wonderful slide show - gorgeous garden Friko has and her view ... well him and her view of the castle.

Delightful and a sunny day ... cheers Hilary

Oh my goodness, aren't they a sweet and welcoming couple. So glad you both had the opportunity to meet one another. What a spectacular setting, such lush, beautiful gardens.

Looks like you quite enjoyed yourself, too. Thanks for sharing this with us, Sue. :)
