Flowers in the centre of the Gentleman's Cottage Garden
I liked the handheld nadir shot from this pano, so after processing the pano I converted it to fisheye projection. This removed my feet and tripod that were in the original shot.

The Gentleman’s Cottage Garden in Barnsdale Gardens, Rutland, UK. The garden was built for the BBC TV series “Geoff Hamilton’s Cottage Gardens”, and was created as an example of how to deal with a garden that is wider than it is long. In 1995 the Gentleman’s Cottage Garden was recreated as the main feature garden at the Gardeners’ World Live Exhibition.

From Wikipedia:
Barnsdale Gardens in Rutland, England were made famous by Geoff Hamilton through the BBC television series Gardeners’ World which he presented from 1979 until his death in 1996. They are situated on The Avenue in the parish of Exton, a short distance north of Rutland Water.

Geoff Hamilton began developing the garden in 1983 from what was then a ploughed field. It now covers 8 acres (3.2 ha), comprising 37 individual gardens and features.
