What an unusual garden! Not surprised you went back for a second look. The trees are magnificent aren't they?
Fancy thinking of making a ghost garden, and very effective it looks too.

unusual is a good word Stera..but the ghost garden is a lost garden planted years ago. the path to it has been washed away and we had to make like mountain goats to get there. it was weirdly magical having to peek through the overgrown shrubs and phormium. the eucalyptus were huge would love to see it restored...

I have known about this garden since the Prisoner series! (Patrick McGoohan) Just absolutely gorgeous... you are so lucky to visit. an abandoned garden is a test of the original planting...amazing to see things usually prized and cosseted just doing their thing! Love that Cycad!

i fear i have give the whole garden an eerie feel from my pics....the centre of the village is as pretty as a picture. strangely beautiful is good description of the wilder parts of the gardens Bathgate. Lori the cycad is a fascicularia much hardier than the cycad and not so spiny...its was great to see them growing on the trees. I can't wait to go back again too Waddy.

I wonder what the original planters would have thought of the way it is now?

i was thinking the same Stera...the oldest tree in these pictures is the red one with lots of trunks. Its a cryptomeria japonica elegans planted in 1900...i have planted a few of these in my garden...i wonder if any will be this big one day...
