The Gardens, Hall Place, Bexley, London, England
This view of the River Cray is from the terrace of the restaurant. There were a lot of ducks and geese in this area; could it be that they know where to get free food?
Crossing the river on the footbridge enables you to reach the rockery. This is quite a large structure with lots of colour and Hall House is visible through the trees in the distance.
Another part of that large rockery showing lots of colourful plants.
This display depicts the topiary equivalent of the Queen's Beasts displayed at Kew Gardens. They were originally commissioned for the monarch's coronation in 1953.
The beasts are: the lion of England, the griffin of Edward III, the falcon of the Plantagenets, the black bull of Clarence, the yale of Beaufort, the white lion of Mortimer, the White Greyhound of Richmond, the red dragon of Wales, the unicorn of Scotland and the white horse of Hanover.
