During a college block in early-autumn last year we visited Powis Castle, an incredible National Trust garden near Welshpool in Wales. The garden spreads itself over these magnificent Baroque terraces, with gigantic cloud-effect yew hedges towering far above that almost appear to be growing out of the castle. It's a truly unique place and I look forward to returning there this year! Also this year I hope to visit Hanham Court, a garden near to Bristol that looked rather special in an article I recently read. Packwood House is also on the must-see list, a garden comparatively nearby to Hidcote. Here's to garden touring on glorious summer afternoons!
