This view, from the Gardener’s cottage looking out across the paddocks, holds special memories for me; of warm summer evenings as the sun slowly sets bringing with it the sweet smell of dry grass, the sounds of distant sheep and the orchestra of birds as they settle in for the night. These moments are enchanting as they lead to an air of quietness, and time for the contemplation.
