The Mediterranean Piazza
What a difference a season makes!
After the controversy earlier this year when the area around the pond was remodelled the summer has transformed the area into a true piazza. The under-planting of echiums are filling the area below the figs and vines which have themselves burst into life with an abundance of foliage. The area has proved so popular with visitors throughout the summer that more tables have had to be provided but these can now be spread out over the large hard standing providing individual space for eating, drinking and relaxing in the sun.
