I love the fact that one of the most iconic gardens in England was created by an American. Gavin, my fellow tour guide, likes to point out that Lawrence Johnston, the creator of Hidcote, became a citizen of Britain and had stronger alliances to England at the end of his life. However, although he was born in France, the fact remains he was an American.
