The Beauty of Grass

I visited Bury Court yesterday which claims to have two of the finest contemporary gardens in the country, designed by Christopher Blakely-Hole & Peter Oudolf. It's been explained to me that 'contemporary' means lots of grasses.

And a 'Tea House', well that's what I think it looks like and with the pond we get the now mandatory water feature to contrast with the stone of the brick work and paths, the wood of the construction and the metal of the planters and furniture.

More pictures in my Bury Court set at my flickr, including some of the non-grass plants i.e. flowers that took my eye, although these also include a Vine!

I like the pictures on your Flikr site Dave. Several of the Bury Court ones are excellent - both the subject matter and your composition work well. Did you get to take home any of the grapes?! Colin
