Jay's Jungle

‘In it’s heyday, the house had a tropical green house along a south facing crenellated wall that was warmed by the sun. Full of exotic tropical plants and flowers with a luscious canopy of ferns, palms and banana leaves it was tended to by the meticulous gardener Edgar Arboreus. It was also home to the Duchess’ beloved grumpy pet jay named Lidth. The greenhouse was the scene of many dive bombing battles between man and cunning bird as they did not get along, such battles would abruptly cease the moment the Duchess entered to pet her precious Lidth while Arboreus silently seethed.’

Tulipomania

‘The Entomologist became a frequent visitor to the house that year with gifts of exquisite blooms: Dante, Parrot, Carnival and Bizarres until his next expedition lured him away with the promise of insect adventures in a far away land. So began a long correspondence of great affection between the Duchess and her Entomologist.’

Wondrous Beasts

‘Inside the house there were a great many wondrous things, layers of vast eclectic collections curated by generations past and present. It would take longer than her life time to see them all and even now there was still something new to discover and delight in: a shaft of warm dusty light falling upon giant chrysanthemums and exotic dragons rippling sinuously across the faded silk chinoiserie pattern of a beautiful old chaise longue.’

Peacock Maximalist

‘Hidden deep somewhere in the countryside, down a winding once-grand driveway there is a long forgotten beautiful old house and garden. Few have stumbled across it and those that have were transfixed by its decaying splendour and magical spell. Long, long ago a Duchess and a handsome peacock walked together in the manicured gardens. Alas, all that is left now is overgrown but some have seen the peacock’s elegant descendants poking through the ancient wisteria, planted on the whim of the Duchess, Violacea Macrobothrys. Legend has it that the duchess is still there guarded by the peacocks… ‘

Entomologist's Garden

‘Every year a botanist would bring plant specimens collected from faraway lands for the tropical greenhouse. The Duchess Violacea Macrobothrys was rather taken with the dashing entomologist who accompanied the botanist’s visit to the house that spring and whilst they peered into glass display cases of butterflies, grasshoppers and beetles a spark flickered back and forth between them. Outside in the garden the peacock paused to admire his reflection in the window and saw the spark.’

Botanical

‘She would walk, skirts brushing against perfumed blooms lining the edges of the ornately symmetrical paths of the manicured formal garden, leading to her own private garden. Here she would weave her way dreamily in and out of her secret places, secluded spots and hidden arbors tending her flowers and later, heady with the scent of sweet peas, rest in the shade of an ancient tree full of whispering memories and lost thoughts whilst she read her private correspondence.’
