Cothay Manor, UK - love the topiary either side of the entrance with the contrasting lavender spilling over the path.

Gertrude Jekyll was a brilliant English garden designer. She was a master at applying color theory to the composition of gardens. I have this book by Richard Bisgrove, where he has combed through thousands of her plans (there are very few remaining Jekyll gardens as she passed away in 1932) and reinterpreted them. Here are just a few examples of how you can plan out beautiful color combinations in your garden.

The Manor House  Upton Grey  Hampshire. UK  Gertrude Jekyll's 1908 Garden Design  "If there is some way that I could choose my eternal paradise, this would be it. An English garden in summer filled with the soothing colour of flowers, heady with the perfume of roses and alive with the buzzing of insects and chattering of birds".  ......Geoff Hamilton ( BBC TV...Paradise Gardens )

The Manor House at Upton Grey is one of the most authentically restored Gertrude Jekyll gardens in the country. What has been recreated, is now a living museum of Jekyll design.
