Welcome to this ‘May’ article, the fifth 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 ‘May – The landscape at Compton Verney’ :
(Please excuse the extra flower images this month – it’s an extra floriferous time of year!)
May 2014 brought the expected explosion of growth and colour and scent that we come to expect from certain areas at Compton Verney. The parkland, as pasture really shoots up, the coppice becomes an English jungle, with wild flowers wrestling for attention amongst dense evergreens – plus the occasional exotic flourish of course! I’m looking forward to May 5015 already!
Regards, Gary Webb, Head of Landscape & Garden at Compton Verney.
