Stourhead on Radio 4

I was listening to BBC Radio 4's Eddie Mair on PM while I was cooking this evening. The programme is usually studio based, but tonight it was broadcast from Stourhead. This is a flagship property of the National Trust which lies only about 5 miles from our previous home, so listening to him talking to the head gardener made me feel quite  emotional. I've ssen all the views they were talking about over and over again in all seasons, but autumn is perhaps when it is at its most dramatic.

I've posted about the Stourhead garden before, but this has given me a lovely excuse to show it off again. The pics I've selected are winter ones becasue you can see more when many of the trees are bare.

Ah! That's the garden I want!
(Hope you didn't mind me putting a message to you on my blog, but I've lost your email and couldn't think how else to contact you.)

Wow- that would be an awesome place to visit.

Yes, Joan. We were so lucky to live near there for 12 years. Even now we go back now and then - it's about an hour's drive away.
