Some time ago I was requested to do an exhibition of several paintings at Sewerby Hall. Rose and I have visited many times over the years and still remember sheltering from a snowstorm under a shelter on the left hand side beyond the hedge in April 1970’s.

Beyond that clipped hedge the walled garden continues to the just seen summer house in the right hand distance with the trees behind.

I just love the ‘umbrella ‘ tree in the centre of of the red/ orange/yellow bed of flowers, themselves surrounded by the low clipped hedge. The greenhouse gives an interesting contrast to the immaculately kept flower beds, highlighted by the dark trees behind.

And the ball shaped shrubs essentially break up the uniformity of the regimented beds.

It is always a pleasure to visit.

Stay safe
