Paulonia Tree allee
This is the allee of new Paulonia tree which borders the topiary garden. The old allee had been knocked down and replaced with the same type of tree. These are extremely fast growing trees so the new saplings, though perhaps only ten years old at best are almost fully grown already. During spring time they're all a-bloom with the most fragrant and pretty pale purple flowers you've ever seen. Quite breath-taking.
