Down at the end of the garden ...

... is a very special place. Where fantasy and folly meet greenery and stone. Old sits with new made old and cool breezes ruffle scented foliage. In the heat of the day blue water beckons and secret garden rooms are filled with forgotten treasures. Michael Trapp travels the world to find antiques and architectural fragments to weave his magic at the bottom of a very special garden.

Absolutely stunning. Reminds me of a fairytale meets an ancient Roman ruin meets the English countryside. What I wouldn't give for an afternoon there!

Thanks for the pics; SO inspiring.

not sure I 'd ever be able to leave such an incredible place... "stunning" just doesn't seem to capture enough...
