The Ballroom Garden at Jupiter Artland

Stone Dovecote at Jupiter Artland

We visited Jupiter Artlands, near Edinburgh, Scotland last week. I’ll no doubt be sharing more pictures, but for now, here’s one looking towards the stone dovecote in the Ballroom Garden for the weekly photo challenge: corner.

The planting is a lovely mix of contemporary and traditional style. The clumps of purple-blue flowers are hardy geraniums; honeysuckle winds around the metal railings of the balcony and pink roses are scattered naturalistically in the tall grass. Very romantic!

    I have very little experience with ballrooms, so I’m forced to ask why this is called a ballroom garden. Is it the flat area with the inlaid look in the middle? I had no idea that the geranium could be used to that effect — it’s wonderful. Thank you for the lovely setting in which to sip my morning coffee.
