    We went for a wander down to the front dam to take some photos of how low the water level has dropped. Wishing for some rain. The level should be up to the level where Hubby burned off the grass a couple of months ago.

    Popped in to Scampston Hall on the way back from a lovely weekend in Whitby... very interesting Piet Oudolf planting scheme, and a successful 'garden room' layout to the walled garden.

    WillDB, thanks for those lovely photos of Scampston.  image

    My son lives in York so I have no excuse for never having visited it... I've just looked at the website and it looks fab.  Did you go up "The Mount" to have a look at the garden layout from above?

    We did go up the mount... that is when my camera battery decided to die! 

    There was a big plant fair there when we visited... it took all my willpower to walk away without looking at the plant sales (I'd already bought three asters from the garden shop)...

    Piet Oudolf always uses plants with nice seed heads and winter silhouettes... bet it would look spectacular on a frosty autumn morning.
