Up all night listening to the election results, but as we are no further forward this morning on which party will govern here in Britain, I went out in search of bluebells and found quite the most magical wood in Kent, with a garden attached - Riverhill House - high on the Weald and with astounding views over the surrounding countryside.
At present, Riverhill will only really be a garden wow at this time of year, since it's a Himalayan paradise with a fantastic bluebell wood. There are no long-established borders here, and although there's many acres of parkland and the most wonderful views over the surrounding countryside, this is very much a garden in the making. It will be interesting to see how it progresses over the next few years, like its neighbour, Titsey Place, but NOW is the time to visit because the bluebells are quite magnificent.
Riverside is home to the Rogers family and they are working hard on developing the gardens, which will, with the benefit of time, be quite wonderful. There is a kitchen garden under construction and a new water garden which will provide interest at other times of year for garden visitors. But now is the time to see the bluebells.
