The Garden of Cosmic Speculation

Published: 10th May 2015

'The Garden of Cosmic Speculation' is the creation of landscape architect and theorist Charles Jencks, at his home, Portrack House, near Dumfries.  It is a private garden open to the public annually on the Sunday of the May Day bank holiday weekend.  We had the privilege of visiting it this year on a very wet day, but it was still spectacular in all ways.  The shapes, vistas and planting is stunning and the detail of the individual areas is exciting and awe inspiring. Dumfries has other beautiful gardens in the area and I would recommend a weekends visit if you are able.  Details can be found for this garden and others nearby on the website www.scotlandsgardens.org
