Today I'm still in the ornamental garden area at the Experimental Farm. This gap in the hedge is a tight fit.
Here we have another view of the Cereal Barn.
Part of the garden here is sunken from the rest of the ground level, arranged around a water feature.
A sundial at the east end overlooks things, dedicated to a horticulturalist who worked here.
This spot lies to the east of the sunken garden.
Coming back around, this view looks west over the sunken garden.
I then carried on with my walk.
It looks a lovely place to wander along with the sound of water, and plenty of shady seats in which to sit.ReplyDelete
I would love to take a walk through this garden.ReplyDelete
That's a very beautiful garden to walk around and take photos !ReplyDelete
Un très beau jardin propice à la balladeReplyDelete

Nice beautiful gardens.ReplyDelete
...I've always enjoyed sundials, no winding or batteries required.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful garden! The fountain looks so refreshing :-)ReplyDelete
@Rosemary: it is quite a place.ReplyDelete
@Nancy: I enjoyed it.
@Gattina: the gardens seemed at their height when I visited.
@Bergson: thank you.
@Jan: this water feature is well done.
@Tom: that's true!
@Tamago: it was well designed, and is well kept up.
Nice place! Thank you for sharing it. :-)ReplyDelete
Ornamental garden? Interesting term. I wonder what makes an ornamental garden?ReplyDelete
The features in the ornamental garden are beautifully looked after William, lovely to stroll through. Hope your arm is feeling a lot better ✨ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful garden! I'd love exploring there.ReplyDelete
Looks a lovely garden to sit in and rest for a while:)ReplyDelete
@DJan: you're welcome.ReplyDelete
@Red: according to the definition I've found, the ornamental garden is meant for aesthetic pleasure, the enjoyment of the beauty of its plants as opposed to being a working garden. This certainly qualifies.
@Grace: it's very well looked after. The arm's aching, but no worse, so I'm sticking with Tylenol instead of going to a doctor for a prescription, as was suggested when I did go to the hospital. The bruises have gotten darker on the leg though.
@Sharon: it's quite a place. Several acres of these gardens.
@Rosie: I enjoyed being there.
Beautiful! I always enjoy seeing a sundial.ReplyDelete

I love botanical gardens. And I can imagine myself sitting on that lovely bench, lost in thought.ReplyDelete
Yes, I still love that barn! And that there are benches to simply relax and enjoy the beauty.ReplyDelete
That's a huge garden, and really beautiful. Well worth exploring, I see.ReplyDelete
