2015 05 05 Compton Verney Spring Blanket 006Photos from a recent visit to Compton Verney House in Warwickshire.

I was struck by the spring flowers – emerging, emerged and, even this early in the year, on their way out. Looking at the photos afterwards, I thought that they had the look of the sort of garden that you sometimes see in medievel books of hours or something that you might embroider on the panels of a patchwork quilt.
