Great Dixter

dixterI haven’t been to Great Dixter for over a decade. It is more wonderful than I remember. At this time of year it is full of dahlias and chrysanthemums. I think it is one of my favourite houses/gardens. Unfortunately you can’t see the interior of the Lutyens extension which is a shame. Another shame is that Christopher Lloyd had such awful taste in modern furniture. It’s dotted around all over the place and, in the voice of my grandmother, it’s ghastly. Good that he was a fantastic gardener.

This is a larder window. To keep the larder cool it has no glass. I love the house leek in it’s little box on the roof.roofSML I like this vast barn roof.
