That is a cracking shot JM, if it wasn't for the trees in the background you would have swore this was a mirrored photo.
Excellent work here

What a beautiful, enchanting place indeed!! I love those "scrolling" hedges! Fantastic and a terrific capture as always! Have a great week!!

Where is that glorious sunshine :). Your beautiful photo has an 'English' feel to it. Very nice.

Such a beautiful garden. It takes talent to get a garden to look like that.

A beautiful garden to see...

I love this type of thing!

A beautiful design and carefully manicured garden, and yet with grass eroding the paving stones. I like it for this contrast as well as for its beauty.

Beautiful garden and capture! I agree with LOLfromPasa, it looks like an English garden:)

Nicely manicured.

This is simply a marvelous garden, JM. It had to be photographed symmetrically.

And you are taken a very symmetrical photo! Everything is in order. This must say something "spiritual" about something, right? Maybe the designers are trying to counter the randomness of the universe?

Kay said...

This is an amazing garden. Very nice shot. Did you show it from another angle a while back, or was that yet another spot?

Hilda said...

Sculpted gardens like this just totally amaze me.

J'adore gardens like this, but I know from experience how hard it is to keep hedges trimmed..if only they would all grow at the same rate haha!
