This aerial photograph of the house and gardens was taken almost a year after the landscaping was completed. The plants in the borders have not yet had a full growing season in which to fill out and the trees have yet to start growing fully. The image was taken by a helicopter photography company who had been doing some work in the area. They approached us at the door and sold us the framed photograph for £49. It is exactly what I wanted.
