AN UNDERSTATED PLAN
Broad strokes are what characterizes the garden at Blickling Hall, now under the direction of the National Trust.
Simplicity and clear lines are what compliment the complex movement of this 17th century architecture with its many towers and bays.
It's a garden that looks to be the result of great decisions made on paper in the studio of a master.
There's no sign of experiment to plan or planting, and although there's nothing truly out of the ordinary here the gardening staff is on the highest professional level and the result of their efforts is perfection.
The park lands are handled very well. You yearn for a horse.
And there are secret gardens in the wood.
Very fine indeed!
