Tintinhull

A visit to see Tintinhull, the proposed venue for showing the work I make about Hadspen.

Tintinhull has a connection – Penelope Hobhouse came here in 1979, after leaving Hadspen, and her husband.  Penelope married again to a professor and a gardener (Mallins), and managed the garden at Tintinhull for the National Trust for 14 years.

Penelope had different interests and aesthetics to the Popes, who picked up the garden at Hadspen, after it had been neglected for some years after her departure, so I wasn’t looking for strong connections between here and Hadspen. But in the border to the side of the house, I saw a few: a single Snake’s Head Fritillary, some Solomon’s Seal just up, and Euphorbia griffithii ‘Fireglow’, all of which I first saw at Hadspen, and have in my own garden.
