JGarden Description:Heale House (not open to public) is set in 8 acres of gardens. The gardens include a range of plantings (it's known for its snowdrops and aconites) and specialty gardens including the Japanese garden. The Japanese garden is really a water garden planted with magnolia and acers, surrounding a tea house and the 'Nikko Bridge'. 




With the south wind a gentle goddess came.
She soaked the bronze, she soaked the fountain,
She soaked the swallow's belly and its feathers of gold.
She hugged the tide, lapped the sand, drank the fish.
Secretly she soaked the temple, the bath-house, the theatre,
The confusion of her platinum lyre --
  the tongue of the goddess -- secretly.
Soaked my tongue.
