Welcome to this ‘September’ article, the ninth 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 ‘September – The landscape at Compton Verney’ :
From this quick skim through images from September, you would be forgiven for thinking it was all sunshine, misty mornings and hazy afternoons. The teams were however really busy as usual across the breadth of Compton Verney, with exhibition change-over activity, events, education and much more. Naturally the grounds team were conscious of the season passing quickly by, our attention turning in general to tidying work and preparation for autumn.
The forthcoming October article will show much of the team carrying out one activity or another – almost all connected with wild flowers! 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.
