Welcome to this ‘October’ article, the tenth 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 ‘October – The landscape at Compton Verney’ :
The October tasks flowed with gusto and kept the grounds team working very hard, with showers and sunshine, showers and sunshine! A great deal was achieved however and all the seeding was completed on schedule. Other work was varied indeed but generally straight forward and focused on keeping the grounds tidy where possible.
I hope you’ve enjoyed another colourful post from the #CVGrounds team at Compton Verney, remember you can see many more, and add some of your own on our Flickr group – Compton Verney Grounds Flickr Pool
Regards, Gary Webb, Head of Landscape & Garden at Compton Verney.
