It has been three days since Christina and I have arrived at Hidcote Manor Gardens. I have moved in, but I am still adjusting to the time lapse. We begin working in the garden on Tuesday, so for now, we are exploring garden and the surrounding area.
Hidcote is located in Gloucestershire, on the west side of England. The area is rural, with surrounding land being dedicated for grazing sheep and growing the crop plant, Brassica napus (rapaseed).
The nearby towns are compact, with a couple of shops and houses that each have a unique and beautiful garden. The nearby towns take a while to visit by foot, but it is well worth the effort.
