I am very fond of this area of Hidcote, hence why I keep babbling on about it! Right now it is a glorious spot to sit and recline, or even wander about investigating what’s in bloom or where exactly that pleasant scent is omitting from. This interest will then last all the way into the cold winter months when again it becomes a haven, sealed from the damp outside with glorious, glorious piping pumping out life-giving warmth! This is definitely one of my favourite parts of the garden and I reserve the right to jabber on about it again at some point in the near future!
