Barrington Court where even the butterflys are trained!

Visited the wonderful Gertrude Jekyll designed gardens at Barrington Court last week. We didn't go in the house as there was an exhibition of Antony Gormleys' work which we were not really interested in so we stuck to the garden instead.
Looking through the lavender towards the white garden.

The borders were just beautiful, hollyhocks, Poppy's, roses, stocks, lavender, snapdragons.........all my favourite type of flowers.

The grass in the orchard had been cut and was waiting to be collected.

This path smelt amazingly of lavender, roses and sweet peas, I have a rubbish sense of smell but even I could smell it!

On the way back a quick peep at the West Somerset Railway.

Back to Barrington Court where in the white garden we saw lots of butterfly's, but only white ones! All over the gardens there were butterfly's of every colour but in the white garden even they obeyed the white rule and only white ones entered!

What beautiful gardens to stroll around in to enjoy.
Funny that there were only white butterflies in the white garden!!
