Stunning Beauty of Levens Hall Garden, UK [9 Pics]

Laven Hall Gardens

Jul 11 2012

Designed by a pupil of le Notre (the designer of the gardens at Versailles, France) this has got to be one of the coolest gardens we have seen in a while. The gardens are dated back all the way to 1694, just after Colonel James Grahme acquired the property after his service in the military for King James II.

Beautiful Flower Garden With Hanging Flowers

Some say that the extremely overpowering smell of flowers makes it almost impossible to sit on that bench for even as little as 15 minutes, without getting dizzy! Location: “Wisteria Tunnel” from Japan's Kawachi Fuji Garden.
