Tintinhull Gardens, Somerset

A couple of weeks ago, on a rare sunny Saturday, I went to a garden in Somerset that I've never visited before. Actually, that isn't strictly true. I had been there once before, a couple of years ago, but it was shut. This time it was not shut - I didn't want to give you the impression that I might have climbed over the wall or something!

Tintinhull, sounding like a cross between a Belgian cartoon character and part of a boat, is a small village near Yeovil. The gardens are around an old Georgian manor house and are serene and delightful. I think I should just let the pictures do the talking.
