Stourhead Gardens with David Currer and local docent

On our journey around the lake, this 81 yr old local plant veteran explained that the head of the Stour River is fed by six springs and that the valley is very protective from the storms off the sea, and thus these trees planted from around the world grow especially well. For me, another level of the temporate green soft climate of the southwest of England.
