Garden of Cosmic Speculation

I’d love to visit this spectacular estate, Portrack House, near Dumfries in Scotland, to see the Garden of Cosmic Speculation created by architect, Charles Jenks and his wife, Maggie Keswick. Quite a remarkable undertaking!

    Incredible! I’d never heard of it before. I’d love to go some time too, maybe on my way back up to Scotland one time. Apparently it’s only open one day a year… but maybe one day I’ll time the two together!

    Thats a very fitting name for such a place…I like how the design of the garden just kind of blends in its surroundings, yet still stands out so magnificently.

    wow, that’s just amazing! and I think this garden deserves an award for the best title – that’s one heck of a name.
