tour of historic house and garden

Saw a house, parts of it dating from 1720s, and gardens around it, including shade garden with outdoor sitting area, herb garden.  At home: took pictures of 'Pink Leda', 'Mme. Zoetmans', 'Maiden's Blush', 'Ispahan'.  'La Reine' and 'Mme. Isaac Pereire' blooming.  'Duchesse d'Angouleme' and 'Mme. Ernst Calvat' have small pink blossoms.
