Thank you Audrey! I really appreciate you taking the time to comment.

This is one of the lovely themed gardens at RHS Harlow Carr in Yorkshire. I rejoined the RHS last March and have visited the garden numerous times this year so it has been fascinating to see the seasonal development. This is a lovely spot with a sunken area with a pool and a small avenue of hazels.
This panorama will show you the whole area.

In Spring the tulip pots are fabulous.

The dahlias are planted up once the tulips fade.
