GENERAL PLAN OF THE GARDEN. 39 gate near Wallington Bridge, we pass parallel to the vinery by a straight walk, which leads to the backwater, where the features of my garden begin. On the right is a rustic view towards- Wallington Bridge, on the left is the fern glade, with its stream, banks of ferns, and beautiful sward, whilst a bridge enables us to pass over to the back- water (plates 18 and 20) and gain the border of the lake. At the top of the fern glade, we suddenly come upon the Fern Glen, a spot full of artificial contrivances, formed in a useless corner, where the gardeners delighted to put rubbish, and where stinging- nettles grew luxuriantly six feet high. It is so hidden that many walk round the garden without finding-it.

Under a large willow is arranged a bower for shade from the mid-day sun, where nightingales, sedge-warblers, and wrens delight to dwell, and the babbling brook "runs every hour of the d'ay, and all the year round, making music of its own to soothe the nervous system.
