Where the Water Buffalo Roam

By Danielcarruthers

Rather bizarrely I’ve visited two gardens within a week, both of which are surrounded by farmland on which they are raising water buffalo. I hadn’t realised they were quite so ubiquitous. That said, I didn’t actually see any buffalo, but I did see some gorgeous plants in lovely surroundings.

The Buildings

It was really too early to fully appreciate her gravel garden packed with a marvelous collection of dry garden plants. It is in its prime in high summer and autumn, but it will be open in aid of the NGS later in the year. It certainly gets my recommendation for a visit if you are in the area.
