The Weald of Kent

Weald of Kent

This is the Weald of Kent as viewed on a hazy autumn morning from Emmetts Garden.  Click on the photograph to embiggen, or here to see the uncropped original in all its hazy glory with points of interest highlighted.

This morning I had coffee at Emmetts Garden followed by a brisk walk around the gardens enjoying the sunshine and warmth. According to About Britain:

This charming and informal garden at the highest point in Kent was laid out in the late 19th Century, with many exotic and rare trees and shrubs from across the world. There are glorious shows of daffodils, bluebells and azaleas in spring, roses in summer and the glowing autumnal foliage of acers and cornus in September and October.

The area was transformed by the 1987 storm [link added by bigblue] and dramatic new vistas opened up, which can be enjoyed from the hilltop tea-garden.
