The Walled Garden at Scampston,
designed by Piet Oudolf,
photographed in early July last year,
where even the cabbages co-ordinated.
The seats in weathered oak were both U and B.
I had the idea that I would recreate a bit of this look in a corner of our garden,
but the apparent simplicity at Scampston
belies the complexity of the planning and planting.
Their plant list runs to 1405 specimens,
with 6000 plants needed for the molinia grasses,
4,500 beech plants for the hedges and
200 lime trees.
Still - I can dream.
