Garden Stroll


Owned by a Sultan and surrounded by 4 acres of stunning gardens, Holme House sits in the middle of Regent's Park.  Grand lawns that lead down to the lake where the house is barely visible from the banks on the other side.

Although the house is strictly out of bounds a stroll through the gardens for us mere mortals is possible twice a year courtesy of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS), to raise money for charity.

After wandering through the sunken garden, through the grotto with its waterfall, past the herbaceous borders, I found myself a comfy seat under a tree and settled down with a book for an hour.

A beautiful photograph of this beautiful place. What's a sultan, anyway? If you said something nasty to him, would you insultan him? Just wondering...

Sounds like a perfect day at a perfect place:)
I like the way you have photographed the building and the garden.
