An overview of the more formal parts of the garden, below my parents' house. Alfred's Arches lead down from the front door axis with the gate that gives the Ellensgate Garden its name visible. Below that the wisteria pergola in the Anniversary Garden stands out. The long sweep to the right in the middle of the photo is the Rosemary Borders which flank the Rosemary Terrace. Beyond the next lawn is the canna bed, very frosted when this photo was taken in early July 2009 as the winter clean-up was starting. The Makou Dam that the house looks out on is visible at the bottom of the photo.
