We are having such wet and miserable weather at the moment, I decided that I needed some cheering up and a reminder of what it is like when the sun shines!

Another shot from Hestercombe Gardens in Somerset.

Hestercombe House is a historic country house Grade II listed and the estate is Grade I on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.
The Edwardian garden was laid out by Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens between 1904 and 1906.

Thanks for looking.
