I hope this is within the deadline for the end of the challenge :)

From Trebah Gardens, near Falmouth in Cornwall. There were some great long views through the garden, and this one seemed to have the most flowers and so fitted the brief best I hope.

I agree with Mark and Sury - very tricky as there are so many interesting entries

Yildiz, yes the tiny white mansion at the top of the garden is Trebah House. The garden was built and evolved over the years to provide a view and pleasant walks for the owners. Like many of the now public gardens in Cornwall, the gardens fell in to dereliction following the Second World War and have been re-discovered and rebuilt in the late twentieth century. They are now funded by charging for entry by the public rather than from the fortunes of wealthy owners.
