We weren’t really sure what to expect when we went to the Rock Garden today. We knew that it had been made in an abandoned quarry and it reminded me of a book I read when I was a teenager. It was a mystery, I think, and there was a house or estate built in a similar abandoned quarry – maybe an Agatha Christie or something like that. If anyone remembers please leave a comment.
Anyhow, this no longer abandoned quarry is lovely and surprising and has the most delightful little paths leading you to secret places. We found some children hiding in a “cave”, their mother said it was their favorite spot in the garden.
There was no water yet in the waterfalls or river. I’m sure it will be splendid when it gets going.
There are also the most incredible European Beeches near the parking lot. They are old, and wrinkly, and remind me of elephant legs, and they’re beautiful.
The cherry trees were also blooming but it wasn’t the best light to capture them.
