Winter at the Lane is a special time – autumn has meant leaves have fallen and the great structure of the trees and plants are revealed. It is really striking to see as the days get longer and colder. The Wisteria Colonnade is bare and the Elm over looking the Secret Garden turns to yellow and then drops its leaves over just two days. The white bark of the birch trees look like parchment and we wait for the under plantings of hellebores and daffodils to emerge.
We have just come out of winter in the Pandemic – and really nothing changed except we got to enjoy the garden looking out of the windows!
