Your Garden has Capability
To mark the 300th anniversary of Lancelot "Capability" Brown, a set of 8 stamps has been released to mark the occasion. This was a man known as "England's greatest gardener", he was a man that through the eye of an artist saw gardens as having great capabilities. He brought fashionable Italian style artistry to English soil, where gardens were sculptured to be draw.
His work can still be seen to this day in 170 gardens in England, such as Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire; Longleat, Wiltshire; Compton Verney, Warwickshire; Highclere Castle, Hampshire; Berrington Hall, Herefordshire; Stowe, Buckinghamshire; and Croome Court, south Worcestershire.
