  1. Tatyana what a feast for the eyes. Must have been a wonderful experience to visit this garden. A garden with the WOW-factor.
    Have a great weekend

    1. Thank you marijike! The Garden needs a good owner to take care of it!

  2. I was going to put one of your pictures on my site, as I'm going to link to this post today. But, you have some super serious security on these things! Anyway, can I somehow swipe that top picture? If not, I'll just link without one.

  3. Wow ~ gorgeous! I love that funky fountain too (or is it a sink?) I've really enjoyed your series on Heronswood Tatyana. Next best thing to being there....

    1. Kathleen, I'm so glad I saw the announcement about the Gardens being open for public that Saturday!

  4. Thank you for the tour of your Heronswood. I am growing my version of a potager, but not at that scale. It is always great to see others' designs. I do have to say that I like the woodland gardens the best.

  5. Pretty amazing garden and photos.

  6. Lovely formality here. Your images are beautiful of the spaces. My favorite space is the hornbeam hedge. I like the way they trimmed out an entry.

  7. a beautiful garden Tatyana must have been wonderful to see in the real, glad I went back to the first 2 posts thanks for the links, Frances

  8. Love formal gardens! Thanks for sharing your visit to Heronswood with your readers.

  9. I love what they've done with just foliage. In the top pictures, the contrasts and repetitions of chartreuse, green, and burgundy are so pretty. Beautiful!

  10. An absolute treat to the eyes Tatyana, glad I dropped by.

  11. Tatiana, I'm glad to see your photos, it's delight! I've been visited the other garden, in Oslo,Norway. It was the good experience for me.

  12. If you're interested in the latest at Heronswood, there's a lot going on. Check it out here:
