  1. That is some inspired topiary! Nobody gardens like the British. This is a terrific photo of the church set off by the carpet of flowers in the foreground–just beautiful.

  2. That is the garden of Avebury Manor, not the church garden. When the manor was owned by a priory the priory were at loggerheads with their church neighbors for centuries! :)

    • Hi Brian: Thanks for letting me know. I’ve updated the post to reflect this. Bet I’m not the first one to make that mistake. They certainly LOOKED like they were part of the church.
