I just wanted to share with you guys some of the photos I took today :)
Looking out over the herb garden from the new tasting room.
Sitting at the Rose Terrace and enjoying one of the best cheesecakes I've had in ages!
The rose garden is absolutely amazing - most of these rose bushes are as tall as I am, and are covered with huge, old-fashioned roses that fill the air with a heavenly scent!
The estate's famous 300 year old camphor trees :) (These always seem to remind me of the Ents in LOTR...)
Exploring the forest... this tree's branches seemed to extend forever!
Sitting at the edge of a babbling brook...
There's something eerily beautiful about the creaking and moaning of bamboo forests in the wind
The "Royal" Oak
The Manor House, as viewed from the entrance to the Octagonal Garden.
Looking the other way...
Some of the detailing around the Manor House (no photography allowed inside, unfortunately).
So, what's your idea of a perfect Sunday afternoon?
