Waddesdon House: Gardens

Intermittent rain curtailed our garden tour, but we did see most of Waddesdon's extensive gardens and landscape. Alas, the big flowers and the roses all were beyond their prime.
Outdoor sculpture, made of magnum-size
bottles, one of two at the entrance to the house

Lots of impressive topiary and bedding designs


Specimen spcimen trees

Backyard pond, fountain, parterres, bedding...


More contemporary outdoor sculpture...something about
escaping the Revolution

In the aviary, a Waddesdon mynah

Still enough roses to be impressive
