Photo a day....8th February.

At Morton Manor, Brading there is this delightful corner of the garden.....the herb bed and the old beehive shelves. In the past there would have been "skeps" in the spaces. For more on skeps see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Making-skep-beehive.jpg

Morton Manor is maintained by the family that have had it since the 40's. The gardens and house are beautiful.
