Garden Photo of the Day: Abbotsford House and Gardens

A Fairy-Tale Setting for a Beautiful Walled Garden
(Great British Gardens via Facebook)
Abbotsford House, in Melrose, Scotland, was the home of Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832), one of the world's most well-known authors, who wrote "Ivanhoe," "Rob Roy" and "Lady of the Lake." The house and gardens are today run by The Abbotsford Trust, which is attempting to restore the house and make the estate self sustaining. This is an incredibly beautiful photo.
