July – The Landscape at Compton Verney
Welcome to this ‘July’ article, the seventh in a series of posts which aim to review, through photographs, twelve months of activity in and around the diverse landscape of Compton Verney. It’s a historic landscape that has seen much change, from the shaping of the areas as new plants establish to the visual delight gained from one of a number of artistic interactions.
There are huge changes in the atmosphere from the busiest of open days to quiet days when just bird song can be heard. Either way, visually the landscape changes minute by minute and it’s wonderful to be there to experience it – and on occasion capture an image or two!
Links to other months will be added at the bottom of the page, but for now, I hope you enjoy ‘July – The landscape at Compton Verney’ :
Over half way through the posts for the grounds blog review July 2014, and it’s fascinating to search through the images taken – a reminder of how busy we were! In some ways it was a typical gardening year with its seasonal ups and downs, but with each open day and a varied program of events; it was never going to be dull!
The weather certainly had its moments, but suffice to say that considering it was midsummer, we certainly weren’t forced into the shade due to extremes of heat! The lawns remained fresh, the meadow flowers danced in the breeze and changing light gave us a new perspective on the sculpture each and every day – furthermore, with splashes of natural colour like those shown above, what more could we ask for?!
Regards, Gary Webb, Head of Landscape & Garden at Compton Verney.
