Waterlily Canal And Miranda’s Border

This still piece of water reflects the surroundings but doesn’t obstruct the view across to the countryside.In summer the water is studded with jewel-like Waterlilies including varieties like James Brydon, Escarboucle, Gladstoniana, Texas Dawn, Cromatella, Perry’s Pink.

A statue of Miranda from Shakespeare’s The Tempest sculpted by Tanya Russell surveys the scene and at the back of the canal is an eye-catching border, whose vibrant reds and yellows of summer Dahlias and Rudbeckias are replaced by Tulips and Wallflowers in the spring.
