| All the gardens in this part of Meadfoot
Sea Road are lucky to have the 'borrowed landscape' of other gardens. In
this photograph we see the garden to the west. Most prominent are the magnificent
Cupressus macrocarpa, the Trachycarpus fortunei and the
Cordyline australis. However, counting on 'borrowed landscape'
- especially that of neighbouring gardens - is always a risky business.
It this case it proved to be fatal: soon after this photograph was taken
the macrocarpa was cut down leaving a very sorry-looking multiple stump.
The remainder of the garden was 'cut back' very substantially.
