A salvaged Gothic window, part of a wall surrounding the sunken pool area built in 1998 at Hanham Court, the Bannermans’ longtime home. Terra cotta pots of tulips brighten the early spring garden while layers of cascading foliage give the illusion of a secret space. Follies like this pop up in many of the Bannermans’ garden designs, usually to theatrical effect.
