I seem to be writing a lot about gardens at the moment. First, there was The Rose Girls, then came Love in an English Garden which will be published next year, and now I’m planning a novel featuring a maze.
The great maze hunt started in May with a visit with my friend, Ellie, to the Bridge End Garden in Saffron Walden which we loved even though the sun was hiding and it was freezing cold!
Saffron Walden also boasts an incredible turf maze – the largest ancient labyrinth in the British Isles which features four corner protrusions known as bastions.
But it’s hedge mazes that I’m most interested in so, with that in mind, Roy and I headed to the beautiful Rococo Gardens at Painswick in the Cotswolds whose maze has two separate centres – one easy to reach and the other a little harder.
But I made it! And I’m so looking forward to my next maze. This could so easily become an addiction…
