Greys Court

One last house and garden in Oxfordshire before going back to London. This time an ancient house called Greys Court. It did not have the expansive landscaping of Blenheim, or the highly manicured look of Waddesdon Manor. Instead, it had a charming, somewhat rambling series of walled gardens that I absolutely loved.

The 500 year old house is impressive, but I always think that a building that old cannot be easy to run or make comfortable. I took a spin indoors but spent the bulk of my time in the garden.
Water feature!
This clematis! Those flowers are the size of dinner plates, and they complement the arching fruit trees.
Wildflower meadow beneath the orchard. One of my favourite looks.
I peeked into the caretaker’s private garden and discovered this delightful little pool.
I didn’t even notice the heron at the time! I didn’t realise it was there until I was looking at the picture afterwards.
Sigh. These climbing roses. Someday I will grow roses!
