The rose gardens were rather unremarkable and a murky pond was overcrowded with water lily pads that were cup shaped and above the water line, rather than lying flat on the water.
The formal, and somewhat unkempt gardens did little to inspire me until I made a discovery on the ground beneath my feet. I saw alpine (or wild) strawberries for the first time ever. Such a sweet surprise! They make the most wonderful ground cover and I can see them making an appearance in my garden one day.
