Fountain switch on …

This was the moment last month when we first switched on the fountain in the large formal pond in the Canal Garden.  Complete with countdown!

The ‘Canal Garden’ is named in honour of the Leominster Canal which used to start at Wharf House.  Wharf House was also the head office of the canal company.  Although now dry, the old canal still attracts a few visitors and there are plenty of signs of its old locks etc.. The large rectangular pond in the Canal Garden is a slight echo of the canal.

The colour scheme in the Canal Garden is pinks to purples.  There are three lovely deep pink lilacs, borders edged in Heuchera ‘Palace Purple’ and the climbing roses ‘The Generous Gardener’ and ‘Lady Of The Lake’.
