Chanticleer Seven in Twelve Gravel Garden

From the darkened Ruins, we enter the light. This garden is a garden to really take a slow stroll. The garden, when created, was very highly amended  to make conditions amicable for the Mediterranean plants that are planted here. The rock garden is planted with low-growing herbaceous plants, many positioned to be viewed closely by the visitor.

As you descend, the plants start to increase in height and airiness, many becoming grasses.

I will let you experience the place as the designer intended. Alone on a casual walk, getting close to the plants and seeing what horticulture the gardens hold.

Now where…

    Wow i want to see this gardens. I can relate very well to the two ladies sitting on that bench, oh how lovely to just sit there under cold temperature conditions. I said that because it is very uncommon to see people here sitting in the open, it is too hot and humid! Donna, when are you coming back?

  2. This is an amazing tour you’re taking us on with your excellent narration. I just love this garden because versions of it could work here. Always looking for inspiration.

  3. Interesting how they created a Mediterranean garden there…love it

  4. Beautifull !!! If I didn’t know better I would have thought : this is England but then I see the cacti and realise this can’t be England. Such a beautifull place and beautifull pictures !!! Thanks for showing us arround !

    The textures tell the story.

  6. I really enjoyed this part of the garden.

  7. I always love the gravel garden probably because I can’t grow any of the plants in my own garden.

    Thanks for the wonderful tours of this special garden!

  9. That’s a very good point: Some gardens are created to look beautiful from a distance and some are meant to be enjoyed up close.
