The house at Lytes Cary dates from the 14th century but the garden is 20th Century and was influenced by the arts and crafts movement. It is a grade 2 listed garden and is a delight. Choccie box heaven

I absolutely agree with your chocciebox heaven description: a super picture
Bill Phillips: not far from you at Somerton. If you haven't been it is well worth a visit

A delight for the eyes, Bill! This is what I think of when I hear "English garden."
Bill Phillips: A classic walled garden Ginnie

Oh, in these times when you have to abdicate sweets, English cooked breakfast, and other delicacies, it is fine to enjoy at least choccie box pictures - a delicate formal garden - but the sky doesn't look like my personal heaven although being overclouded.
Bill Phillips: It was quite a pleasant day Philine...i don't like too much sun.

A truly wonderful image Bill.

Very attractive Bill - but those clouds carry the day. They are quite wonderful.
Bill Phillips: It would have been very routine without that sky

Nice sky Bill, how much did Tiffo charge for that one?
Bill Phillips: Hundred quid the greedy sod!
The garden is very nice but the sky is the star here.
Bill Phillips: It is Mary. A very ordinary picture without it!
The glorious cloud formation is challenging the flower border.
Bill Phillips: The sky is the best thing about this picture Richard
very good composition
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Chantal

I wish my garden looked like this, its gorgeous along with the lovely sky smile
Bill Phillips: I wish mine did too. You just need a wall that is a few hundred years old grin

Definitely off the box. But then the box manufacturers only used the top photographers.
Bill Phillips: Hahaha That is fine flattery sir Louis!
Lovely picture bill, do I detect a touch of Topaz here.
Bill Phillips: Actually no. I haven't used Topaz much for a while. This was just a bit of adjustment in photoshop to enhance the sky and a bit of sharpening
Beautiful garden Bill and an even better composition of it with that fantastic sky for contrast.... i have had a chance to look at 2 and 3 but i am running out of time for comments....i am still a few days behind on my replies....petersmile
