Verbascums in the forecourt with the church as backdrop

Poppies in the stableyard
We've weeded this area in the Stableyard - picking up anything that wasn't a poppy - which has given them the chance to display their full glory.
At Greys Court (also National Trust), the gardens are all stunning as they have the backdrop of a ruined medieval property. Despite having a blinding migraine, I managed to struggle round and see (most of) the glorious planting and stunning ruins:
Acanthus spinosus (Bear's breeches)
Clematis, stone trough and crumbly wall
Plant theatre in the kitchen garden
I really want a plant theatre myself - I can just picture it on the old stone wall of the back of our house. Surely they can't be too difficult to make?
